As each new volume in this edition of Henry of Ghent’s works appears, we learn more about Henry as a thinker. A critical edition of a medieval writer not only determines the text with a scientific exactitude, but also reveals how the author skillfully employs his authorities in order to establish his position...
THE EDITIONS AND MANUSCRIPTS
Two printed editions of Henry of Ghent’s Summa precede the present critical edition. They are described by R. Macken in his article, Les corrections d’Henri de Gand à sa Somme, in his Bibliotheca manuscripta Henrici de Gandavo, and in the critical study of his edition of Henry’s Summa, art....
THE TEXT EXAMINED EXTERIORLY: HISTORICAL AND CODICOLOGICAL ELEMENTS USED FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE TEXT
Gómez-Caffarena has shown that in general a number of cross references exist between Henry’s Summa and his Quodlibeta.1 In articles 47-52 of the section of the Summa edited in this volume the Quodlibeta are implicitly referred to four times: p. 160, 822-823 (a reference to Quodlibet IV, q. 7);...
THE TEXT EXAMINED INTERIORLY: THE RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE MANUSCRIPTS, ESTABLISHED BY A GENERAL TEST COLLATION
The general test collation of all the manuscripts containing the text edited in this volume was conducted by selecting one hundred and fifty lines from each pecia of the first exemplar. Pecia 70, however, begins late in question four of article fifty-two and it was, therefore, not possible to test the full...
MANUSCRIPT 8 (PARIS, Bibl. Nat., lat. 15355) INDEPENDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY TRADITION
Articles 47 through 52 of Henry’s Summa in this series contain only a few corrections and none of the compound levels of corrections as described in R. Macken’s critical edition of Summa, art. 31-34.1 For the portion of Henry’s Summa that appears in the present volume manuscript A is closer to the...
THE TOULOUSE MANUSCRIPT
There are a number of instances in the portion of Henry’s Summa edited in the present volume where the manuscript of Toulouse (T’) indicates its independence from manuscript A and the manuscripts of the first exemplar. Because of these instances, manuscript A cannot be regarded as the model...
THE FIRST PARISIAN EXEMPLAR
When the first exemplar is compared with manuscript A there are many places where it is clearly inferior to manuscript A. The General Table of the Number of Common Accidents by Groups found above shows that the first exemplar contains a total of two hundred fifty-seven accidents when compared...
THE SECOND PARISIAN EXEMPLAR
Two manuscripts, PADUA, Biblioteca Capitolare, ms. C.45 (=P’) and ZWIJNAARDE (Gent), Comtesse Goethals de Mude (=K’), make it possible to reconstruct the second Parisian university exemplar for the section of Henry’s Summa edited in this volume. The high number of common readings along...
THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE CRITICAL TEXT
In order to reconstruct a critical text for the portion of Henry’s Summa included in the present volume the manuscript PARIS, Bibliothèque Nationale, ms. Lat. 15355 (= A) was used as the principal working text. This manuscript is a copy of the autograph or possibly Henry of Ghent’s own liber magistri...
THE REFERENCES IN SUMMA, ART. 47-52
The section of Henry’s Summa edited in this volume contains references to prior as well as subsequent articles of the work itself as well as to some of his Quodlibeta. In one instance Henry refers his readers to the portion of the Summa known as the De creaturis that he did not complete.2 As has...
PREVIOUS EDITIONS OF THE SUMMA, ART. 47-52
The first printed edition of Henry of Ghent’s Summa was in 1520 by the humanist printer and editor, Iodocus Badius Ascensius.1 This edition in turn served as foundation for the edition of Scarparius, which was printed in 1646. As both R. Macken and G. A. Wilson have maintained, the manuscript upon...
THE GENESIS OF THE EXEMPLARS REPRESENTED BY A DIAGRAM
A stemma codicum for the portion of Henry’s Summa may be constructed based upon the study of the explicit pecia indications of the first and second university exemplars as well as upon the general test collation of all the manuscripts concerned with this portion of the Summa. However, medieval...
TECHNIQUE OF THE EDITION
The principles employed in the preparation of this section of Henry of Ghent’s Summa are for the most part identical with those of the earlier volumes of this series.1 The one exception concerns certain readings of the text of Henry found in Badius that seemed to be authoritative. These readings...

ARTICULUS L. DE DELECTATIONE ET AFFECTIONE DEI
Circa primum arguitur quod in Deo sit ponere affectionem. Primo sic. In quo est ponere principium, et principiatum. Amor autem est principium et origo omnium affectionum, quia omnis affectio aut est circa bonum vel iam habitum, ut gaudium, delectatio et huiusmodi, aut
