LA TRADIZIONE A STAMPA DELLA METAPHYSICA NOVA ARABO-LATINA NEGLI INCUNABOLI E NELLE CINQUECENTINE
Keywords:Aristotle, Averroes, Metaphysics, Metaphysica Nova, Arabic to Latin Translations
This paper provides an annotated list of printed editions of Aristotle’s Metaphysica Nova, i.e. of the Arabic-Latin 13th-century version of Aristotle’s Metaphysics, which circulated within the Latin translation of Averroes’ Commentarium Magnum (Tafsīr mā baʿd al-ṭabīʿat). It is shown that this version – the impact of which was second to none – was never printed without at least one Greek-into-Latin version. From the 1473 editio princeps to the 1562 Iunctas edition, complementary material from the Greek into Latin and from the Arabic into Latin Aristotelian traditions was increasingly added. Links to relevant digital reproductions are also provided.
