Aquinas on the Trinity from the Collection of Sir Thomas Phillipps
Interesting Text of Dominican Theology. Single folio on vellum. Northern France or southern Netherlands, ca. 1350: 302 mm x 207 mm (justification 203 mm x 168 mm). Double column, 53 lines. Ruled in plummet. Foliated “32” in upper right recto. Informal hand in uneven lines, an idiosyncratic cursive for a leaf of this size. Decoration: Initials tipped in red, paragraph in red. Text: “Quaestiones disputate de veritate”, quaestio X, De trinitate. This discussion of the Trinity and the image of God is supported by citations from Boethius and Augustine. Provenance: Bliss/Dring fragments from the collection of Sir Thomas Phillipps; collection of William Chmurny (d. 2013). Condition: Recovered from a binding, the recto surprisingly legible; minor wrinkling along one edge; glue stains on verso with some text illegible; a few holes, though not affecting the text.
