Abstract [en]

Seven folios at the Vatican Library (Vat. Syr. 586) constitute the only remaining part of a manuscript from the 13th century that contained a large commentary on the Categories of Aristotle. The text features an exchange between a pupil and a master, where the pupil either puts a question on a certain matter regarding the Categories or asks for a clarification to a lemma that is cited from it, to which the master attempts to offer a basic explanation. The extant part of this commentary, which deals with Aristotle’s concluding discussion on the category of quantity and his initial presentation of the relatives, with some noteworthy observations, is edited here for the first time from the partially mutilated folios with a translation and some annotations. The question of its date of composition, its possible author and some other relevant points are treated in the introduction.
