Brill authors Leen Spruit and Pina Totaro discovered the original manuscript of Spinoza's "Ethica" in the Vatican library. This spectacular discovery attracted a lot of media attention. This edition will be published in Brill's Texts and Sources on Intellectual History (BSIH) in August. The Vatican codex, which contains the complete text of Spinoza’s <i>Ethics</i>, is the only surviving manuscript of this work and constitutes a document of great importance, as it predates the publication of the <i>Opera Posthuma</i>, which appeared in the first months of 1678.
