Francisci de Marchia, Opera Philosophica et Theologica


Francis of Marchia (born ca. 1290) was a highly innovative thinker. Recent work has highlighted facets of his philosophical theology, natural philosophy, political philosophy, philosophy of mind, and metaphysics that show his creativity and deserve more study. A lively discussion of aspects of Marchia's thought can be traced in the second quarter of the fourteenth century, but because Marchia's works are for the most part unprinted, scholars have been hampered in their efforts to reconstruct his thought, let alone trace its influence. This new series of critical editions of Francis of Marchia's most important works will go a long way to improving that situation. Marchia’s major works are versions of his Sentences commentaries, most of which will be published as part of this new Leuven University Press series, and which include the following:

*Scriptum on book I of the Sentences
*Commentary on book II of the Sentences: q.1-12 - published 2009; q.13-27 - expected end 2010
* Commentaries on book III of the Sentences
* Commentary on book IV of the Sentences
* Theological and Philosophical Questions
