Chapter Summary

This chapter concerns Peter of Auvergne’s six Quodlibeta and focuses on basic issues, rather than doctrine. Peter of Auvergne had been a rather prolific and influential Parisian arts master for a quarter of a century before he took over one of the chairs in theology reserved for canons of Notre-Dame as a secular master in 1296. He left six written Quodlibeta, 108 questions in total, surviving in nineteen known medieval manuscripts and one later witness, which are discussed in detail. The chapter also includes two appendices. The first appendix demonstrates that, although Peter composed each Quodlibet individually and does not appear to have ever made a new, comprehensive redaction, he put much thought into the organization of each Quodlibet. The question list in Appendix I and the critical edition of Quodlibet I, q. 1, in Appendix II are based on complete reproductions of all witnesses.
