 think this list is an excellent audience to properly present our research project in progress, Arnau DB. Digital corpus on Arnau de Vilanova. You are invited to visit our website < >, where you will find:
  • A rigorous up-to-date view of the figure and works of the physician and religious reformer Arnau de Vilanova (Arnold of Villanova, Arnaldus de Villanova), in contrast to the distorted perception that is still all too common today even in academy.
  • Access to the databases that our team is developing on 1) The works attributed to Arnau, both authentic and apochryphal (medical, religious and alchimical), more than 300 titles including translations and different versions, 2) the manuscripts transmitting these works (c. 900 mss. so far recorded), 3) the early modern editions of Arnau's or Pseud-Arnau's works (more than 200 so far recorded, 4) the archive documents related to Arnau's biography, and 5) the secondary literature referring to Arnau de Vilanova and to his corpus (more than 1100 references). By now only databases 1 (works) and 5 (bibliography) are open to any visitor, while we are finishing the others.
  • news about the research on Arnau de Vilanova.
We hope it will be useful to you,
