Chapter Summary

One of the most important documents for early fourteenth-century thought is the Sentences commentary and “notebook” of the Augustinian Hermit Prosper of Reggio Emilia, Vatican City, BAV, Vat. lat. 1086. The manuscript contains a remarkable amount of information on and material from theologians active at Paris in the 1310s, including a great many personal reportationes of quodlibetal questions, which have been dated largely on the basis of their being reported by Prosper. Vat. lat. 1086 is a combination of two manuscripts that belonged to Prosper. The first main part, folios 13r–87v, contains a tabula questionum and what remains of Prosper’s commentary on the Sentences. The second part was once a second manuscript, originally numbered ff. 1–226, but renumbered 101–325 when it was joined to the first manuscript, which reveals that there is a missing quire that was part of Prosper’s commentary, presumably containing questions on distinction two.
