Duns Scotus Online

I make no pretensions to this page providing a systematic guide to Scotist material that is available online. But there are some useful resources available that are not easily stumbled across, so I thought there might be some use to this collection of links. If I have omitted something especially useful, please let me know.

Bibliography

Tobias Hoffman has compiled a splendid bibliography of Duns Scotus. It includes editions, translations, and secondary works on both Duns Scotists and later Scotists. It's well-organized and includes several very useful indices. Available here.

Duns Scotus on Internet Archive

Several scans of the 1891 Vives edition of the Opera Omnia edited by Wadding are now available online. It should be remarked that this is not a critical edition; its problems are well-known to Scotus scholars. It is, however, the only edition we have of significant parts of Scotus's corpus, a fact painfully well-known to scholars. Another reason to use this edition is that it provides a commentary on the text; so, if, for example, one is interested in Lychetus's commentary on Scotus, this is the most convenient place to find it.

I have provided links to the scans provided by the Internet Archive. For links to other editions of works by Scotus and to additional scans of the same edition, see the very helpful list provided by the Post-Reformation Digital Library.
