Description

The anonymous translation of Thomas Aquinas's commentary on Aristotle's logical works (On interpretation and Posterior Analytics) is part of a wider project which includes vernacular translations of other Aristotelian commentaries by Thomas (On the Heavens and On generation and corruption). The work, witnessed by a single manuscript (Milan, BAmbr, A 178 suss.), might be assigned to someone called Giuseppe Gramaglia (cf. a note by a different hand at f. 1r: 'Accomodato à  M[aestro] Josepho Gramaglia a Monte[.]'. NB in translating the commentary on Aristotle's On Interpretation the translator acknowledges Cardinal Caietanus's authorship of the second part of the commentary itself, completed after Thomas's death.

Manuscript copies

Milan, BAmbr, A 178 suss.

Bibliography
