Merton College MS. 90
Former shelfmark: H. 1. 6
DUNS SCOTUS; S. XV
DSO (Wadding), 12. 1–544; Glorieux, Théol. 344s.
Ed. A. B. Wolter (Chicago, ILL, 1983), pp. 3–151, here with a short addition to the printed text ‘Opt’ contingentis uult omne alio a se saltem causale ...’. Glorieux, Théol. 344h.
This does not seem to be the same text of which a fragment is pr. DSO (Wadding), 3. 431–40; Glorieux, Théol, 344ad. Tanner, pp. 238–9 n. a, reports this copy, but gives the incipit ‘Quia summa nobis cognitio est’, as Bale, Scriptores i. 363. Another copy with the present incipit is in Assisi, Bibl. comm. 172, fols. 117v-20v.
DSO (Wadding), 3. 345–430; Glorieux, Théol. 344u1. 19 quaestiones, 1–17 corresponding to Wadding 1, 8, 6–7, 2–4, 17–18, 9–11, 20, 36–9; then follow two pr. from this and MS 65 by Harris, Duns Scotus, II, pp. 361–70. The text varies much from the printed version.
DSO (Wadding), 3. 345–430; Glorieux, Théol. 344u2. Divided into eightquaestiones. 1–3, 5–8 are Wadding 23, 26, 19, 30, 34, 12, 32; cf. MS 65 art. 2. No. 4 is ‘Vtrum g’tus entis sit simpliciter unicus Deo et creaturis’.
Frame-ruled with crayon, written in 35–8 long lines.
Small, neat secretary hands. Marginal annotation throughout in several contemporary hands; one of them may be that of the second table of contents, which is perhaps the hand of Thomas Gawge.
Blue initials flourished in red; red or blue paraphs.
Standard Merton s. xvii, sewn on five bands; chained from the usual position.
