Boethius: Commentaries on Peri Hermeneias

Prof. John Magee is creating a critical edition of Boethius’ two commentaries on Aristotle’s Peri Hermeneias, based on new collations of the extant witnesses. In addition to reconstituting, for the first time, the texts on the basis of the full tradition, the editions will determine, particularly in the case of the editio prima, the different recensions of Boethius’ translation of Aristotle’s Greek, and furnishing, in the case of the editio secunda, an apparatus fontium vel similium.
