Giles of Rome, Maimonides and the Errores philosophorum

Producción científica: Capítulo del libroCapítuloInvestigaciónrevisión exhaustiva


This article presents and discusses several references to Moses Maimonides’s Guide of the Perplexed in the authentic works of the Augustinian Hermit Giles of Rome (ca. 1250-1316). These references, which have gone unnoticed until now, show that Giles of Rome deserves a place in the history of the reception of Maimonides in the Latin West, being chiefly interested, as he was, in the Guide’s discussion of God’s attributes and knowledge of particulars. Analyzing the relevant texts from Giles’s principium and his Ordinatio books I and II, significant similarities appear with the Errores philosophorum, a work whose attribution to Giles has been contested. While these parallelisms may not be sufficient to prove Giles’s authorship, they contribute important pieces of evidence to the scholarly dossier on the Errores.
