Critical edition with introduction and notes.
"The commentary on Aristotle's Peri hermeneias is certainly one of the most important texts in the corpus of Peter Abaelard's works on logic. The author discusses the
Aristotelian text in an unbiased and thorough manner without avoiding any difficulties, and thereby addresses all basic issues of classical logic and semantics. The text forms part of the so-called
"mixed commentaries" and is characterised by short self-contained systematic discussions within an explication of the Aristotelian text. Of particular significance are the discussions of predication
(chapter 3), future contingentia (chapter 9) and modal logic (chapters 12-14).
In 1927, this substantial commentary was edited by Bernhard Geyer. The edition was based on the only manuscript of the text then known to scholarship (Milan, Biblioteca Ambrosiana M
63 sup., fols. 45r-72r). In 1938, M. Grabmann discovered a second manuscript of the work (Berlin, Staatsbibliothek Preussischer Kulturbesitz, lat. fol 624, fols. 97r-146r). As L. Minio-Paluello has
shown, the final part of Abaelard's text, which includes the long excursus on modal logic and the commentary on chapters 12-14, is accurately preserved only in this second manuscript. He edited this
final part in 1958.
A detailed comparison of the two manuscripts showed that the differences between them are so numerous and noteworthy that a new critical edition was necessary. Geyer's and
Minio-Paluello's editions could be improved upon in several places. Aristotle's text in the version known by Abaelard is also included."

"The present volume contains an edition of two logical texts -- one certainly and the other probably by Abailard -- which have not been published in print before now.(1) The first
-- a section of Abailard's longer commentary on Aristotle's De interpretatione, now usually known as the third part of the Logica 'Ingredientibus' -- was discovered about twenty years ago by the late
Martin Grabmann.(2) The second, consisting of two sections apparently extracted from one or two otherwise lost works by Abailard (?), was seen and mentioned, though not ascribed to this author, by
ABAILARD'S COMMENTARY ON ARISTOTLE'S DE INTERPRETATIONE CHAPTERS XII-XIV.
Abailard's more extensive commentary on Aristotle's De interpretatione ( Perierrnenias) is preserved complete in one manuscript, now in Berlin, and incomplete in another manuscript,
now in Milan. Geyer published the text of the latter; (4) a short passage of the seciton missing from it was included by Grabmann in his description of the former. (5) " (pp. XII-XII).
(1) No other unpublished logical works ascribed to Abailard are known to exist. There are, however, a number of references to and quotations from logical writings of Abailard in
unpublished texts; see, e.g., below, p. XLI, and Grabmann's paper mentioned in the next note. It is possible that one or more works in cod. Orleans 266 (see below, pp. XLII-XLVI) belong to him.

"The short text which appears under the title of "Secundum M. Petrum sententie" in a collection of logical writings originally belonging to the library of the monastery at Fleury
(cod. Orleans 266, pp. 278-281) is fragmentary. (...)
The text clearly consists of two sections, in no way distinguished from each other in the manuscript. The first contains the analysis of a paralogism; the second, four problems
arising from the use of 'totum', and their solutions. It is conceivable that the second section originated in the study of -- or might even be extracted from a commentary on -- Boethius's De
divisione, which is partly concerned with 'totum' and includes more than once examples referring to the parts of a house. But their is nothing in the first section of the Sententie to suggest that it
may belong to such a work, or indeed that it is part of the same work as the second section. There is, however, much in common between the two sections: the concepts used and the methods applied for
the solution of logical difficulties are the same: much turns, in both sections, on the distinction between the " personal " and the " ad sensum" reference of words, or, roughly speaking, between the
reference to individual things and the reference to concepts. Again, much use is made of logical " regule " in both sections. These common characteristics do not necessarily point to unity of work,
but rather to the interest which caused the compiler to connect these two sections in one text.
This text can be tentatively ascribed to Abailard. It is found in the midst of writings by Jocelyn (Goslenus) and other, anonymous, masters of the first half and middle of the
twelfth century." (pp. XXXIX-XLI).

"Aristotle deals with the use of speech, Abailard says (Log. Nostr. petit., 508, 32--509, 8), in his Categories, De Interpretatione and Topics,
and with argumentations in his Prior and Posterior Analytics (1): Porphyry wrote an introduction to the first-mentioned treatise. Thus, the scheme of his own Dialectica is
obvious: he first treats of the parts of speech (partes orationis): tractatus I; next the categorical propositions and syllogisms are dealt with: tractatus II; the
treatment of the hypothetical propositions and syllogisms (tractatus IV) is preceded by that of the topics (tractatus III); the author ends his work with a treatise on division and
definition: tractatus V." p. XXV.
(1) Abailard's description of the Aristotelian treatises is not wholly correct.

Associated with Abelard and His School." Revue d'Histoire des Textes no. 14-15:183-302.
"This checklist has been compiled to take stock of what is presently known about the manuscripts of the works of Peter Abelard and to aid and stimulate further work in Abelardian
studies. It also includes information about the writings of Heloise and about the manuscript sources for the study of her life. The manuscripts of the writings of some contemporaries who were closely
concerned with Abelard, e. g. as correspondents, are added, together with manuscripts of writings by Abelard's closest disciples and followers.
The material is arranged as follows:
Part 1. The manuscripts p. 188
Appendix : Lost, unidentified or destroyed manuscripts p. 229
Part 2. The writings of Peter Abelard p. 240
Appendix : Lost or unidentified writings of Peter Abelard p. 256
Part 3. Unauthenticated or anonymous writings giving the teaching of Peter Abelard p. 259
Part 4. Writings which have from time to time been attributed to Peter Abelard, either in the manuscripts in which they occur or by later scholars p. 262
Part 5. Writings bearing directly on the doctrines of Peter Abelard, the lives of Abelard and Heloise and the Council of Sens p. 273
Part 6 a. Writings attributed to Heloise, or bearing on the early history of the Paraclete p. 283
Part 6 b. List of charters issued for the Abbey of the Paraclete be fore the death of Abbess Heloise p. 287
Part 7. Epitaphs of Abelard and Heloise p. 293
Index of works included in the checklist p. 298
The list is designed to provide guidance on the manuscripts for those engaged in editing writings by Abelard and by his associates and followers, as well as for those who wish to
know how, when, where and by whom these manuscripts were copied and read. Several manuscripts are listed here which have not hitherto been used in editions or which have only recently come to
