The completion of a critical edition of Henry of Ghent's Quodlibet IV

Completion of preparation for publication of Quodlibet IV, the medieval philosopher Henry of Ghent's longest work, written in 1279. (12 months)

Gordon Wilson and Girard Etzkorn have been invited by Leuven University to produce a critical edition of Henry of Ghent's Quodlibet IV, volume VIII in the Leuven series HENRICI DE GANDAVO Opera omnia. 45 volumes are anticipated in this series; 16 are already in print. These editions have become the standard texts for translations, secondary studies, and conferences. They have generated a renewed interest in many of Henry's ideas and have highlighted Henry as a major thinker of the Middle Ages. Henry's Quodlibet IV was written at the height of Henry's academic career and many of Henry's mature ideas in this text influenced John Duns Scotus. Because of his originality and influence scholars repeatedly have been promised new editions of his works since the 1880s. Leuven University Press has taken on the printing of the series, and publication is assured. In 2004 the NEH funded two years of research on this volume (all goals were met); one final year is necessary to finish the volume.
