Gregory of Rimini

(d. 1358)
   Philosopher.
   Gregory was a member of the Order of Augustinian Hermits. He was educated at the University of Paris and, after teaching at Bologna, Padua and Perugia, he was appointed a Doctor of the Sorbonne by Pope Clement VI in 1345. He became Vicar-General of his order in 1357. He is remembered as an important mediaeval philosopher. Influenced by william of ockham and a determined Augustinian, he taught that actions performed without grace are sinful. He took this to its logical conclusion and maintained that unbaptised babies who die are condemned to eternal damnation. In consequence he was given the title ‘Tortor Infantium’ – the torturer of infants.
