Description of the dataset

Description: This is a transcription of the beginning of Walter Burley’s (c. 1275–after 1344) commentary on Aristotle’s Politics (book one, tractate one, chapter one). The transcription reproduces the text of Vatican, MS Borgh. 129, fol. 1r–148v (here fol. 2rb–6va), which has been accessed in a high quality digital reproduction in colour. The commentary has been dated between 1338/39 and 1342.

The transcription includes two apparatuses. The first of them is dedicated to references, mainly to Aristotle’s Politics. The other apparatus is for critical notes, and its main function is to reproduce marginalia. The manuscript contains several corrections by another hand (marked here as V1), and since these corrections have been accepted, the original readings are provided in the apparatus.
