Chapter Summary

Th is article examines Gerald Odonis' view on the nature of place as found in his commentary on the Sentences and in an anonymous question extant in manuscript Madrid, Biblioteca Nacional, 4229. Gerald Odonis was one of the most "original, bright, and also courageous philosophers of the fourteenth century," whose views frequently contradicted the received opinions and aroused strong criticism. This claim was made by Anneliese Maier in her study of Gerald's Parisian disputation on the beatific vision, one of his later theological writings. Gerald's views in the fi eld of natural philosophy is still to a large extent dependent on sources other than his own writings. The most important source for our knowledge of Gerald's opinions has been John the Canon's highly influential commentary on the Physics. Most of Gerald's own writings on natural philosophy remain unedited and have received little scholarly attention.
