(d. 1360),

frequently referred to as ‘Armachanus’, was chancellor of Oxford (1333) and archbishop of Armagh (1347). He was regarded as the official spokesman of the secular clergy against the friars, and he wrote a treatise against the friar's doctrine of obligatory poverty, De Pauperie Salvatoris, in which he discussed ‘dominion’ or ‘lordship’, taking a view on the subject similar to that later adopted by Wyclif.
