The Averroes Edition
The Averroes Edition produces scholarly editions of the works of the Andalusian Philosopher Averroes or Abū l-Walīd Muḥammad ibn Aḥmad Ibn Rušd, born in Cordoba in 1126, died in Marrakesh in 1198, more particularly editions of his treatises and commentaries on Aristotle in the field of Natural Philosophy. The edition comprises Averroes’s original Arabic texts as well as their Medieval Latin and Hebrew translations. Also edited are three commentaries by Averroes’s predecessor Abū Bakr Muḥammad ibn Yaḥyā Ibn Bāǧǧa, known as Avempace, born in Saragossa around the year 1075, died in Fez in 1139.
The Averroes Edition is a project of the North-Rhine Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts and the Thomas-Institut at the University of Cologne, established in 2016 and scheduled to run for a period of 25 years. It forms part of an international collaborative corpus edition – Averrois Opera (Corpus Philosophorum Medii Aevi) – overseen by the Union Académique Internationale.
