Philosophia Magni Aurelia Augustini ab Aegidio Columna Romano interpretata a Patre Nicolao Gavardi in Romana sapienta Magistro dilucidata . praelecta vero a Fratre Feliciano Ullmann Eremita Augustiniano.
Bohemia 1746 - manuscript in ink on paper in a neat cursive hand, with five diagrams in the text, ff. 270, 4to, contemporary mottled calf, spine richly gilt, red edges, a little worn but still very good Written by Felicianus Ullmann, a monk in the order of Augustinian Hermits, this manuscript is an adaptation of Nicolo Gavardi’s course of philosopy based on the writings of Aegidius of Colonna (c.1245-1316), ‘Doctor fundatissimus’. A pupil of Thomas Aquinas, he became Prior General of the Augustinian Order, whose monks were required to study his writings. In the seventeenth century Nicolo Gavardi (1640-1715) wrote a course of philosophy, including the basics of astronomy and physics, based on the work of Aegidius, and this was used, as exemplified here, by the Augustinian Hermits. This copy is dedicated to the Bohemian nobleman Vinzenz Ferrerius von Waldstein-Wartenberg. Three of the diagrams illustrate the planetary systems of Ptolemy, Tycho, and Copernicus, and another is a Porphyrian Tree. The text is prefaced by a history of the Waldstein family.
