Periphyseon (De divisione naturae): on God (Book 1)


A new group for Lent Term 2018 on the magnum opus of John Scottus Eriugena's Periphyseon (De divisione naturae), composed between 864-866.

We will be using the critical editions of Édouard Jeauneau (1996) and Peter Dronke (2012), and we will also consult the English translation of Inglis Patrick Sheldon-Williams (1968).

The first half of the gathering will be spent in reading the text in the original and in translation; the second half, in discussion.
