This article offers a survey of the commentary tradition on Aristotle’s Meteorology at the Jagellonian University from its foundation to the first half of the fifteenth century. In the first part, I will focus on manuscripts containing copies of commentaries by Parisian masters which circulated at the Universities of Prague and Krakow, namely Oresme’s, Albert of Saxony’s, John Versor’s and Peter of Ailly’s. In the second part, I will examine commentaries on Aristotle’s Meteorology by Polish masters of the fifteenth century, the most important of which are the Questions of Paulus of Worczyn and those of Peter of Sienno. This study will provide us with important information to evaluate the influence of the Parisian philosophy at Krakow and to correct (or render more precise) some ascriptions previously accepted in the literature.
