Chapter Summary

The Franciscan John Duns Scotus has left us a single Quodlibet, consisting of twenty-one questions stemming from a disputation held at Paris in the first decade of the fourteenth century. This chapter offers a general study of the manuscripts, demarcating the extent to which they have distinctive features that might prove valuable in determining their overall filiations. It presents a detailed discussion of the textual tradition of question 16, “Utrum libertas voluntatis et necessitas naturalis possint se compati in eodem respectu eiusdem actus et obiecti”. The chapter then observes a tentative stemma for the relations between the manuscripts in question 16 along with some further observations regarding the manuscripts and the layers of text contained in the question. Finally, it presents an edition of question 16 based on the complete collation of ten manuscripts and the preliminary checking of some thirty more.
