2A1r Thomas Aquinas [pseudo-: Prologue to commentary on De consolatione philosophiae.] ‘Prologus'.’ Thomas Aquinas, Opera omnia, VII 121-2. On the authorship see Pierre Courcelle, La consolation de philosophie dans la tradition littéraire (Paris, 1967), 322-3, 414-15, also Nigel Palmer, ‘Latin and Vernacular in the Northern European Tradition of the De consolatione philosophiae’, Boethius, ed.

This commentary apparently dates from the fifteenth century and is probably the work of a German scholar; it is a compilation with glosses of a version of the commentary of William of Conches being assimilated to those of Nicolaus Trevet; see Alastair J. Minnis and L. Nauta, ‘More Platonico loquitur: What Nicolaus Trevet Really Did to William of Conches', in Chaucer's ‘Boece' and the Medieval Tradition of Boethius, ed. Alastair J.
