After drawing a map of all the commentaries on the ‘Sentences’, preserved in the monumental domus pro libraria of St. Dominic’s Convent of Bologna in the 14th century, the present paper focuses on two particular case studies: the manuscripts A 913 (Bologna, Archiginnasio Library) and A 986 (Bologna, Archiginnasio Library). The analysis will provide an explanatory illustration of how the convent is actively and directly involved in several theological and philosophical discussions characterizing the Parisian milieu in the first decades of the 14th century. Then, the library does not only reflect the geographical diffusion of texts, but also the concrete influence of some doctrines on the late medieval educational activity.

Abstract

After drawing a map of all the commentaries on the ‘Sentences’, preserved in the monumental domus pro libraria of St. Dominic’s Convent of Bologna in the 14th century, the present paper focuses on two particular case studies: the manuscripts A 913 (Bologna, Archiginnasio Library) and A 986 (Bologna, Archiginnasio Library). The analysis will provide an explanatory illustration of how the convent is actively and directly involved in several theological and philosophical discussions characterizing the Parisian milieu in the first decades of the 14th century. Then, the library does not only reflect the geographical diffusion of texts, but also the concrete influence of some doctrines on the late medieval educational activity.
