Fellowship Work Summary, 1993–94
Katherine H. Tachau focused chiefly on a new book, Bible Lessons for Kings: Scholars and Friars in Thirteenth-Century Paris and the Creation of the Bibles Moralisées, while continuing her work on a projected edition of the Sentences of Pierre Aureol and his intellectual biography. She also wrote an article, first delivered as a lecture—"The Reach of God's Omnipotence: Some Aspects of Possibility and Necessity According to Pierre Aureol"—that will be published in the proceedings of the Symposium on Medieval Logic and Semantics. She read proof on her essay, "Robert Holcot on Contingency and Divine Deception," that appears in Filosofia e teologia nel Trecénto, edited by L. Bianchi (Louvain, 1994) and on a critical edition of Seeing the Future Clearly, to be published by the Pontifical Institute for Mediaeval Studies.
