Chapter Summary

The “Collection of Nicholas of Bar” occupies a prominent place in Palémon Glorieux’s repertory of quodlibetal questions. The 170 questions that it contains were first listed under the name of Nicholas in the 1925 volume amongst the eighteen different authors involved in it. The name given to the collection derives from the fact that the only manuscript that preserves it, Paris, BnF lat. 15850, belonged to Nicholas of Bar-le-Duc, who, at his death in 1310, bequeathed it to the “poor masters of the Sorbonne, students in theology”. All in all, the safer conclusion at present is that the initial parts of Nicholas of Bar’s collection represent a selection of cases discussed in quodlibetal disputes during the 1290s, probably most of them during the first part of that decade, while the final section contains reportationes of questions from the early 1300s.
