Meister Eckhart's Parisian Questions - the four newly re-discovered to come out in the Kohlhammer critical edition


With delight I have read from Professor Loris Sturlese (Lecce, Italy), the editor of Eckhart's Latin Works in the editio maior of the Kohlhammer-Verlag that after having checked the Vatican Codex (Vat. lat. 1086) himself, he entirely agrees with my observations and suggestions which I made public for the first time last year at the International Medieval Congress in Leeds: The hitherto not recognized four 'dubious' Quaestiones which are preserved in this codes are authentic and by Meister Eckhart. They will be published in the next forthcoming fascicle of the critical edition. Taking into account that Professor Pater Walter Senner (Rome) also found a reportatio of yet another Parisian Question of Eckhart, we suddenly are in a position to have exactly twice the amount of Parisian Questions than what we had before.
As our team at King's College London is working on the translation and interpretation of the newly found Parisian Questions, we are glad that the editor has taken this decision and we will all work closely together to make the content and its interpretation available to the public as soon as possible.
