30 identified entries found.
  • UC4.6 (`pharetram doctorum'): William de la Furmentarie OFM [?]
    (attrib.), Pharetra pr. [Strassburg 1472] (Goff P571), &c.; ed. A. C. Peltier, S. Bonaventurae opera omnia (Paris 1864–71), 7. 1–231; Glorieux Rép. 311t; Distelbrink 178; Bloomfield 2530. [One copy of the work is dated 1261, which provides a terminus ad quem; it is usually anonymous, but some copies carry an ascription to Bonaventure, other to Guibert of Tournai, and one very distinctively to William de la Furmentarie, an English friar.]
  • UC4.*7: Lactantius Firmianus [fl. 305–323]
    Diuinae institutiones CPL 85.
  • UC4.8a: 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.
    De generatione et corruptione, Latin tr. from Arabic by Gerard of Cremona unpr.; Latin tr. from Greek now attributed to Burgundio of Pisa: ed. J. Judycka, AL 9/1 (1986); Thorndike/Kibre 374. Latin tr. from Greek by William of Moerbeke, which circulated widely, ed. J. Judycka, ALD.

A. van Oppenraaij (Leiden 1998); Books XV–XIX, ed. A. van Oppenraaij (Leiden 1992). It may sometimes refer to the collection in 21 books, tr. from Greek by William of Moerbeke, which adds De progressu animalium liber I and De motu animalium liber I:– a.
