Aristoteles Latinus Database

Alternative Titles
Aristoteles Latinus Database (ALD)
ALCD
Brepolis
Description

The critical edition of the Medieval Latin Aristotle is one of the main projects supervised and supported by the Union Académique Internationale / International Union of Academies. The most important objective of the project is to bring to scholarly attention the various forms in which Aristotle’s texts came to be read in the West. The Latin versions of these texts constituted the main tools for the study of science and philosophy in the Middle Ages. They were considered as being the canonized littera to which all the commentaries on Aristotle’s works referred. The role played by these translations in the development of the Western philosophical and scientific terminology can thus hardly be overestimated. All the texts that have been critically edited in the series Aristoteles Latinus are now available Online and on CD-Rom together with the texts not yet available in a critical edition.

In the course of the last fifty years twenty-five volumes have already been published in the printed Aristoteles Latinus. They include the entire corpus of Aristotle’s logical works, all the Medieval Greek-Latin translations of the Metaphysics and the Nicomachean Ethics, and several versions of the physical and technical works of the Aristotelian collection. The edition of the remaining parts of the program is in progress. The electronic database offers the complete texts but is not identical to the printed publication as it omits the prefaces describing the manuscript tradition and the apparatus of variant readings. Nor does it include the Greek-Latin comparative apparatus or the bilingual indexes. The critically edited texts themselves, however, have been included with all their peculiarities, such as interlinear notes, and the typographical distinctions that characterise the texts of the revised versions.

The texts included are prepared and supervised by the Aristoteles Latinus Centre of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. The database is produced in collaboration with the Centre ‘Traditio Litterarum Occidentalium’ (CTLO), which is a humanities computing laboratory for the study of Latin texts. This Centre continues former activities in the field of Latin studies at Cetedoc. The aim is to provide the academic world a scholarly product of the highest quality.

The ALD Online is searchable simultaneously with other Brepols full-texts databases (namely the Library of Latin Texts, the Monumenta Germaniae Historica, the Archive of Celtic-Latin Literature).
