Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval
Since March 2018, I am Editor of the Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval. REFIME is an yearly scholarly publication, which is indexed and peer-reviewed, and distributed by the University of Zaragoza’s Publication Service. The Revista is the official journal of SOFIME, a Society mainly gathering scholars from Spain, Portugal, and South America, but also from the rest of Europe and North America. Its official venue is the University of Zaragoza. The Revista is continuously published since 1993, with scientific contributions in Spanish, English, French, German, Portuguese, and Italian. The submitted articles must be original contributions to the discussion on medieval thought and the transmission of knowledge (from the Middle Ages up to the Early-Modern Period), with a special interest on authors and texts of the Iberian Peninsula, even though also contributions related to the intellectual tradition of Late Antiquity are welcomed.
Since 2011, I collaborate with the Società Internazionale per lo Studio del Medioevo Latino (SISMEL) at the marvellous Medioevo Latino indexing and database project.
The Ordered Universe
The Ordered Universe is a cutting-edge research project based in Durham, UK, and directed by Giles Gasper. Its aims are as simple as tough: joining together, on the one hand, historians, philosophers, and theologians, and, on the other hand, theoretical physicists, cosmologists, and engineers to study Robert Grosseteste’s scientific opuscula. Since years, the Ordered Universe Project has opened a new landscape for the methodology and approach to the history of medieval science, proving that a collaboration between scientists and humanists is not only possible, but also desirable.
Aquinas and the Arabs
The Aquinas and the Arabs International Working Group (AAIWG) has become the worldwide reference for the study of the influence Arabic philosophy had on Thomas Aquinas’s thought and, in general, on the thirteenth-century philosophical debate. Meeting regularly twice per year in different location around the world, the group is brilliantly directed by Richard Taylor and gathers the best scholars in the field. AAIWG also organises multimedia research seminars, one of which has been dedicated to Dominicus Gundissalinus.
Cordoba Near Eastern Research Unit (CNERU)
Research group, founded in 2012 to foster knowledge of Near and Middle Eastern societies from the ancient period to the modern times. University of Cordoba (ES).
Based at the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Porto (PT), the RG intends to do systematic research exploring four thematic fields, which were pivotal in philosophy from the 13th to 17th Century. Expected results of this research are mainly critical editions, studies and papers, translations, cataloguing and description of sources, materials and tools for research (with in situ research of manuscripts or acquisition of reproductions).
Unity and Plurality of the Logos in the World. Explicatio and ratio naturae in 4th-14th centuries Medieval Hermeneutics (LOGOS).
Based in Pamplona and directed by Maria Jesús Soto Bruna, the research group analyses some fundamental metaphysical and theological themes, such as the causality of the One, the concept of Logos, and the ontological difference between God and creatures, discussed through the long Middle Ages. The group counts many brilliant scholar from Europe and Latin America, and its outcomes will soon be published on a dedicated volume.
Directed by Cecilia Panti, the research group Rogerius Bacon: The Philosopher’s Workshop is focused on the shared reading and discussion of Bacon’s works. Based at the SISMEL in Florence, the group organises seminars since 2009: the first one was centred on Roger Bacon’s Communia naturalium, while the current seminar is focused on his Moralis philosophia. The group also started a multimedia dissemination project aimed at sharing accurate knowledge on this pivotal medieval figure beyond the scholarly circle.
