Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses 91 (2):223-238 (2015)

In this contribution I investigate the relation between Peter of Auvergne’s questions on Aristotle’s cosmological work De caelo and the condemnations of 1277. First I give a short survey of Peter’s life and work and of two sets of quaestiones on De caelo that are ascribed to him: the CEK-questions and the WP-questions. Then I briefly discuss the condemnations of 1277 and their relation to De caelo. Finally, I discuss in detail the shifts in doctrine between the CEK- and the WP-questions. I argue that it is most likely that the change in doctrine between the CEK- and WP-questions on the eternity and animation of the heavens and on the possibility of an infinite multitude in act is effected by the condemnations of 1277.
