This article offers the editio princeps of the first question of the Prologue of the Sentences commentary of Henry of Harclay (1317), a secular theologian lecturing at Paris in the first decade of the fourteenth century. Traditionally, in his Sentences commentary Harclay has been seen as a follower of John Duns Scotus, while in his Ordinary Questions written in the next decade while chancellor of Oxford Harclay is thought to be more independent from the Subtle Doctor. An analysis of the crucial question edited here, on whether theology is a science, shows that Harclay could be termed an independent Scotist in his early work.
