Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the usual medieval orthography has been followed. Ambivalent spellings allowing adjectival as well as adverbial interpretations, such as in 'vere', and 'maxime', are thus left ambiguous. The numbering of the folios is in line with the handwritten numbers written in the right hand upper corner of each successive folio. The numbering of arguments, counter-arguments, conclusions etc. within each questio is the editor's work as well, but is usually warranted not only by the inner logic of the text, but by textual devices employed by the scribe in the manuscript itself as well, and the occasional numbering added in the margins of the manuscript. The many references in the text to Porphyry's Isagoge, etc. are traced in the notes according to their standard, present-day editions. References to Aristotle are complemented with the Latin text in the Aristoteles Latinus.

Keywords: Aristoteles Latinus.; medieval orthography; Porphyry's Isagoge; Thomas Manlevelt
