In Christoph Flüeler, Lidia Lanza & Marco Toste (eds.), Peter of Auvergne: University Master of the 13th Century (2015)

This contribution contains an edition and discussion of four of Peter of Auvergne’s questions on Metaphysica XII, which deal with the first mover, its relation to the primum mobile and, indirectly, with the proper movers of the celestial orbs. First I present some information on Peter’s questions on the Metaphysica and on the manuscripts I have used for the edition of book XII, questions 8-11. Secondly, I briefly discuss Aristotle’s Metaphysica XII, 6-8, the interpretations of this text by Avicenna and by Averroes, and Peter of Auvergne’s theory concerning the movers of the celestial orbs in his questions on De celo. Thirdly, I examine in detail Peter’s questions 8-11 on Metaphysica XII and compare them with parallel passages in his questions on De celo. The appendix contains an edition of Metaphysica XII, questions 8-11.
