Chapter Summary

The works collected by Amplonius Rating de Bercka in his Erfurt library centred mainly around philosophy in all its branches, with special interest in logic, mathematics and philosophy of nature as well as medicine, and in works on theology, and juridical works on private law and church law. The connection between the commentaries is established right away by the first questio of the commentary on the Isagoge. The ascription to Thomas Manlevelt is corroborated by a line of text, supposedly added in the late fourteenth century at the top of the recto-side of the first folio: 'Hee questiones fuerunt compilate per Thom. Manlevel Anglicum doctorem solempnem'. The doctrinal point in question, in the context of which this reference is made, is vintage Ockhamist nominalism, namely that 'man in general' is nothing but a universal term: '"homo in communi" nihil aliud est quam terminus universalis'.
