More Medieval/Scholastic Latin

Postby mjdubroy » Thu Oct 24, 2013 12:41 am

A sentence from Albertus Magnus:

"Amplius, quidquid est causa gubernationis et motus alicuius corporis, absque eo quod virtutem vel gubernationis et motus formam accipiat ab eo, secundum esse et essentiam separatur ab ipso quod sic gubernat."

I can't quite figure out what the pronouns refer to: eo, eo, and ipso are all Masculine. It seems grammatically possible for it to refer back to motus but that doesn't make any sense in the middle clause.

My take so far:
"Further, whatever is the cause of governing and motion of some body, without ____ which the power or form of governing and motion would receive by _____, according to being and essence it (the cause) is separated by ____ which it (the cause) governs thus."

They are all neutral (and not masculine) and can be translated with that/it. They refer to quidquid and to corpus.

Further, whatever is the cause of governing and motion of some body, apart from that which receives power or form of governing and motion from it, according to being and essence it is separated from it which governs thus.

Do you have a link you could share to the Magnus, mjdubroy? I'm interested in reading some of his stuff but can't seem to ever find it.

Certainly though I think the text I am using is from this (handed out by my professor): http://urts173.uni-trier.de/albertusmag ... sers/login

I think these are some high quality documents to read:

here is the homepage: http://albertusmagnus.uwaterloo.ca/newFiles/index.html

And then of course where all the pdfs are to download: http://albertusmagnus.uwaterloo.ca/newF ... ading.html
