Set Summary


Historical Background

The Goliards were a group of satirists who were clergy in the Catholic Church and students aspiring to become clergymen. They existed in the 1100s-1200s CE (the High Middle Ages). Their poetry satirized the Church. Their mockery was fueled by corruption in the Church and the failure of the crusades to retake the Holy Land, which undercut the Church's claim to piousness and competency in battle. The most well known set of poems by the Goliards is Carmina Burana (perhaps most known in Final Fantasy history through the musical work, "Carmina Burana", composed by Carl Orff in 1937, where some of its music & lyrics formed part of the Final Fantasy VII musical track "One-Winged Angel").

Some accounts of their behavior include attending mass with a herring (a type of fish) on a string trailing behind them, dressing a mule up in a silly costume and singing a song of praise about it, gambling on the altar of a church, using old shoes as incense censers, as well as wild dancing and ‘indecent gestures’.

Goliard is also used as a word for a wandering scholar or minstrel in medieval Europe known for wild partying and composing satirical poetry.

The term Goliard either derived from the Latin word for gluttony, gula or from Bishop Golias, the pen name many goliards used to write many of their poems. In their ‘mythology’, Golias was the patron saint of debauchery.
