Yet Another 'Lost' Chapter of Wyclif's Summa de ente Notes on some puzzling references to Tractatus 13 1

Vivarium 49 (4):353-367 (2011)
Abstract This paper deals with three references found in John Wyclif's unpublished De scientia Dei to a certain Tractatus 13 , whose title relates to the position it holds in the first book of Wyclif's Summa de ente . They are puzzling references, since the first book of the Summa is made up barely of seven tracts. In this paper I argue that the three references are actually linking devices to the final section of the De ente praedicamentali (ch. 19-22). Moreover, I maintain that, at the time of the compilation of his De scientia Dei , Wyclif conceived the first book of his Summa as containing thirteen tracts, the last seven of which later collected under a single item (viz. the De ente praedicamentali ). This allows for a broader and more consistent account of the order and dating of the De scientia Dei (1372) and other Wyclif's writings.
