[The same title is also used to refer to Bede, De temporum ratione (CPL 2320), and unconfirmed entries may be either work; where there is some corroboration, it always points to De temporum ratione, though sometimes manuscript catalogues have simply accepted the medieval title and not confirmed the text, e.g. James, St John's, 31. The cumulative indexing has led to reassignment of identifications in a number of cases.]

  • UO1.43a (` . . cum commento'): 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 anima, Latin tr. from Arabic by Michael Scot pr. Padua 1472 (GW 2349), &c.; Thorndike/Kibre 179, 1271. Latin tr. from Greek by James of Venice [AL 12/1], ed. J. Decorte & J. Brams, ALD.
