  • S28.1: Aristotle [384–322 BC]
    L. Minio-Paluello in DSB 1. 267–81 (on tradition and influence). Indexing Aristotle's works presents difficulties at several levels. He wrote a great deal. The sources provide evidence at different periods for the Greek text, multiple Latin translations from Arabic and from Greek, groupings of individual works under familiar medieval titles, and a wide range of pseudonymous texts. The descriptions provided by the sources are often imprecise, especially as to which Latin translation was recorded. Since the sixteenth century scholarly interest has focused on the Greek text rather than on versions current in the middle ages. Only in recent decades has Aristoteles Latinus attempted to document the Latin versions current at different times, but its progress with editions has been slow. Recently Aristoteles Latinus Database (ALD) has provided complementary material. Since 1971 a separate series Aristoteles Semito-Latinus has aimed to edit translations from Arabic. Where neither is not available, one must have recourse either to major sixteenth-century printings of Latin (in cases where they print the medieval versions) or to the earliest printed editions that may themselves have been documented by our sources. The resulting index is inevitably uneven. Thanks to Pieter de Leemans for his advice.
    Magna moralia, tr. ? Bartholomew of Messina unpr.; AL Codd. 71–2, 159–60.
  • S28.2: Aristotle [384–322 BC]
    Logica uetus compriseda. the Isagoge of Porphyrius, tr. Boethius: ed. L. Minio-Paluello, AL 1/6–7 (1966), 5–31. b. Aristotle's Categoriae (usually called Praedicamenta), tr. Boethius: ed. L. Minio-Paluello, AL 1/1–5 (1961), 5–41. c. his De interpretatione (usually called Peri ermenias), tr. Boethius: ed. L. Minio-Paluello, AL 2/1–2 (1965), 5–38. d. Liber sex principiorum (attrib. to Aristotle, perh. by Gilbert de la Porrée): ed. L. Minio-Paluello, AL 1/6–7 (1966), 35–58. e. Boethius, Liber diuisionum: CPL 887. f. Boethius, De differentiis topicis: CPL 889. [Some copies, e.g. FA8.307, contained other texts in addition.]
  • S28.3: Thomas Aquinas OP [c1225–1274]
    Kaeppeli's repertory of Dominican writers excluded Thomas Aquinas, for whom there is no manuscript-based listing. Since the list by Glorieux, 1. 85–104, the tally of works has been reduced. For an up-to-date list, see G. Emery in J. P. Torrell, Thomas Aquinas 1 The Person and His work (Washington, DC, 1996), 330–61, following on from lists by I. T. Eschmann in E. Gilson, The Christian Philosophy of St Thomas Aquinas (New York, NY, 1956), 381–437, and J. A. Weisheipl, Friar Thomas d'Aquino (New York, NY, 1974), 355–405. There is an up-to-date list of current editions by E. Alarcón, Optimae editiones operum Thomae de Aquino,
    Commentary on Aristotle's Ethica STO 47. 1–607; Glorieux Rép. 14at.
