Description

Troubadours and Philosophers: A Roundtable on De Nobilitate Animi

The 13th century philosophical treatise in Latin by Guillelmus de Aragonia, De Nobilitate Animi (new edition by William D. Paden and Mario Trovato to appear in 2012) attempts to define nobility, especially in terms of the heart and spirit. In scholastic style it invokes a variety of authorities: of particular interest for Occitan scholars, it cites such troubadours as Peire Vidal, Jaufre Rudel, Folquet de Marseille, Guilhem Montanhagol, and one Arnaud, translating excerpts of their works into Latin. It also quotes Aristotle, as well as the works or translations of Ahmed ben-Sirin. This roundtable will begin with an introduction by William Paden followed by scholars currently working on texts contiguous to the De Nobilitate in some way.
