Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book Thomas Manlevelt: Questiones libri Porphirii. The book presents the fourteenth century Questiones libri Porphirii attributed to Thomas Manlevelt. By way of a first introduction to this new text, the book is produced with a geographical and temporal context, and thus places it against its proper intellectual background. Then, the book explores the contours of its doctrinal and investigational persuasion, and indicates the main points of interest of this commentary on the Isagoge. A line of text at the top of the first folio, supposedly put there by the end of the fourteenth century, states that these questiones were compiled by the able doctor Thomas Manlevelt the Englishman: 'Hee questiones fuerunt compilate per Thom. Manlevel Anglicum doctorem solempnem'. The text with which Robert Andrews is concerned, is a commentary (questiones) on Aristotle's Categories, also ascribed to Thomas Manlevelt.

Keywords: Questiones libri Porphirii; Robert Andrews; Thomas Manlevelt
