Barszczow A. N. (orpheus_samhain) wrote in linguaphiles,

quodlibetation

I cannot find the meaning of this word. The online search tells me that the only source of this word is the preface to the Heptameron. Maybe it's misspelled?

The short stories which Master Francis scatters about his longer work are, indeed, models of narration, but his whole tone of thought and manner of treatment are altogether alien from those of the "ravished spirit" whom he praises. His deliberate coarseness is not more different from her deliberate delicacy than his intensely practical spirit from her high-flown romanticism (which makes one think of, and may have suggested, the Court of La Quinte), and her mixture of devout and amatory quodlibetation from his cynical criticism and all-dissolving irony.
