Thomas of Jorz (often but erroneously called JOYCE and frequently referred to as ANGLUS or ANGLICUS), theologian and cardinal, date of birth and circumstances of his education unknown; d. at Grenoble, December 13, 1310. He entered the Order of Preachers in England, and was remarkable for his piety, erudition, and executive ability. He was master of theology at Oxford, acted as prior of the Dominican convent there, and afterwards served as Provincial of the English Province for seven years (1296-1303). He stood in special favor with Edward, King of England, acting as his confessor and executing several commissions for him. While at Lyons on a commission for the king, December 15, 1305, he was created Cardinal Priest of Santa Sabina by Clement V. This pope also appointed him legate to Henry VII, King of Germany, but in fulfilling the appointment he was taken sick and died. His body was afterwards transferred to Oxford and buried under the choir of the Dominican church. His writings are often confused with those of Thomas of Wales, O.P., also called Anglus or Anglicus. His most important work is "Commentaria in IV libros Sententiarum". The commentary on the first book (Venice, 1523) still enjoys popularity, and offers a concise and complete refutation of the attacks made by Scotus on the teachings of Saint Thomas.

"Your rank and possessions are nothing to us, for we have long before this sacrificed the like for the sake of Christ and rejoice in what we have done."
-- Saints Crispin and Crispinian, to Emperor Maximianus after he had attempted to bribe them into renouncing Christ; they were martyred for their faith
