Life

Very little is known of Richard's life. He became a Franciscan in 1238, after which he moved to Oxford to study theology. Around 1250 he lectured on Peter Lombard's Sentences at Oxford, and again later at Paris. He returned to England to be the fifth Oxford Franciscan master of theology around 1256.

Work

Richard is the author of the earliest surviving lectures on Aristotle's Metaphysics, Physica, De generatione et corruptione, and De anima.
