Commentaries on the Perihermenias

A new set of pages in the Logic Museum (index here) consisting of Boethius' translation (from Greek to Latin) of Aristotle's 'On Interpretation', and three commentaries on them: Boethius' own, Abelard's and Aquinas'. The commentaries are both excellent introductions in their own right to Aristotle's work, and a useful insight into the medieval conception of logic.
