Chapter Summary

This chapter looks into the contents of the Tractatus suppositionum terminorum by Master Franquera, in the context of the teaching of logic in Salamanca in the fifteenth century. It examines the Suppositiones attributed to Master Franquera, in the framework of the logical literature of Salamanca, where three names seem to dominate the scene: Master Franquera, Garcia de Castello and Cerdo. These three authors seem to be closely connected with each other and to depend on the teaching of Master Bartholomew. The chapter also explains them as related in some way to Pedro Fajardo, Juan de Pastrana, Guillermo de Osma and Juan de Santa Cruz, as well as to some anonymous treatises. If Juan de Pastrana is the best known author in this group, Master Bartholomew is probably the most influential.

Keywords: Garcia de Castello; Master Bartholomew; Master Franquera; Salamanca; Suppositionum; Tractatus suppositionum terminorum
