REVEREND PHILOTHEUS BOEHNER, O. F. M. 1901— 1955 BIBLIOGRAPHY OF FR. PHILOTHEUS BOEHNER, O. F. M. When a prolific and versatile author does not keep track of his own writings, it is rather difficult for somebody else to establish a complete record of these publications. Fr. Philotheus did not have a list of his writings, nor did he possess a copy of everything he had published. We have tried to gather an exhaustive bibliography of his, but we fear, especially for the writings listed under rubrics III and IV, that our efforts did not fully succeed. Statistically speaking, it appears, from our list, that Fr. Philotheus has written mainly in German and in English, occasionnally in French ; he has done translations from the French into German, and from the Latin into German and English. A number of his publications were editions of Latin medieval texts. Minor articles of his have been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Bosnian, and Lithuanian. In Philosophy he spent most of his time and efforts on medieval Logic and History of Philosophy, his preferred author being William Ockham, whereas in Biology, especially thermonasty and bryology caught his attention. A bare list of writings obviously does not tell the entire story of the, literary career of an author. In the case of Fr. Philotheus, for instance, one ought to add that the Franciscan Institute, in the short years of its existence, has published 48 volumes (cf. Appendix; 40 volumes were published before the death of Fr. Philotheus), in addition to the fifteen volumes of Franciscan Studies and the five volumes of The Cord. Fr. Philotheus was the driving power behind all these publications. He started Franciscan Institute Publications and The Cord. He reorganized Fransciscan Studies. He was not the first to think of publishing a collection of Works of St. Bonaventure in English ; nevertheless, he started the series. And he began the forthcoming edition of Opera omnia theologica and philosophica of Ockham, for which series he did a tremendous amount ofwork. Besides, to picture the literary career of Fr. Philotheus, one ought to evaluate his contribution to a better understanding of reality. Posterity has to do that. 23 Franoucan Studies32 1 322E. M.
