Abstract: The texts, first of all. More precisely, the unpublished commentaries on the Book of Causes and on the Elements of Theology, which are only partially uncovered in the two volumes of Neoplatonism in the Middle Ages (= NeMA). These volumes principally report philological and historical findings, though without neglecting — but also without privileging — philosophical analyses, treating those aspects most in need of describing when confronted with a corpus largely unknown or ignored until now. At the outset of the project, still underway, priority was given to the substantive groundwork: consulting catalogues, locating manuscripts, identifying the commentaries and providing detailed analysis (diffusion of manuscripts, edition, contextual and doctrinal studies). Together these elements constitute a kind of identity card for each of the commentaries studied in these pages; at times precise information can be given, while at others it was necessary to advance only hypotheses which now await further research in order to be verified.
