St. Albert and St. Thomas

Some interesting news from The Albertus Magnus Institut in Cologne

- An Albertus Magnus bibliography database is now online, covering (for now) the primary and secondary literature from 2001 onwards. It currently has 98 entries also dealing with Thomas Aquinas

- Their primary objective, the critical edition of Albert’s works (the so-called Cologne edition) is advancing steadily with in the last few years one volume every two years (De praedicamentis, 2013; Super I librum sententiarum : distinctiones 1-3, 2015; De nutrimento et nutrito ; De sensu et sensato cuius secundus liber est De memoria et reminiscentia, 2017).

The latest volume, which has just come out and edited by Ruth Meyer, has Albert’s Super Threnos and Super Baruch.

It might be interesting to see whether the introduction touches upon the In Threnos Jeremiae expositio, attributed to Thomas Aquinas or whether a future comparative analysis might shed a light on this question.
