Quaestiones Metaphysicae by Antonius Andreas, 1459

Identifier: MS 124/ff. 57r-190r


This section contains Quaestiones Metaphysicae by Antonius Andreas, or Antonio Andrés. This text consists of excerpts from Questionibus super Metaphysica by Duns Scotus, an important philosopher-theologian. Antonius Andreas was a Spanish Franciscan theologian and pupil of Duns Scotus. This is a philosophical text about metaphysics.

The Text starts on f. 57r with the words Girum celi circuivi sola and ends on f. 190r with qui est deus benedictus vivens et regnans super universa creatura a seculo usque in seculum. Amen.

The Explicit, also on f. 190r, reads Explicit Metaphysica fratris Johannis Duns de Scocia nominatus doctor subtilis, excerpta per fratrem Antonium Andree de provincia Arragonie custodya hyldensi.

The Colophon starts just after this and reads Completa per me Marquardum Roden de Almania nunc parish anno domini 1459 in octava Sancti Michaelis Archangeli.
