  • UC125.1 (`textum moralis philosophie'): 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.
    Ethica, tr. Robert Grosseteste pr. Louvain 1476 (GW 2360), &c.; ed. R. A. Gauthier, AL 26/1–3 (1972–4), 141–370, 375–588 (two recensions, the second a revision by Moerbeke)). Ethica noua (where specified) was an anonymous translation from the Greek of Book I, circulating with Ethica uetus, a translation of Books II–III (AL 26/2), both now attributed to Burgundio of Pisa.
  • UC125.2 (`Codeton super 4 libros sentenciarum'): Robert Cowton OFM [† after 1313]
    Lectura super Sententias largely unpr.; Sharpe, Latin Writers, 531–2; Stegmüller Sent. 732.
