Chapter Summary

The complete and original Latin text of Vincent Ferrer's philosophico-theological work, usually known as the De unitate universalis, composed in Lleida in around 1370-1372. A more detailed examination shows that the Quaestio de unitate universalis and the Hebrew version are partially identical, leading to the hypothesis that the Hebrew translation of the Latin text may represent a more complete redaction of Vincent Ferrer's work which is now lost. An examination of the general structure and the contents of the Hebrew translation of this passage suggests that it substantially agrees with the Latin text of the Vienna ms., but includes some alterations with respect to it. In turn, at the beginning of the same paragraph, the Vienna ms. incorrectly ascribes to "nature" the capacity of annihilating a single individual, which Petrus Nigri and Eli Habillo correctly attribute to God.
