“On the Beatific Vision” – Translation and Notes

Dear all,

Please find attached a working English translation of Dietrich’s treatise: Dietrich of Freiberg – De visione beatifica EMConversions

The Latin text has been uploaded online by its original editor, Burkhard Mojsisch, and can be found here: http://www.hs-augsburg.de/~harsch/Chronologia/Lspost13/Theodoricus/the_vi00.html

I note that Mojsisch refers to this online version as a “new edition”, but my translation follows the original edition of 1977 (Dietrich von Freiberg, Opera omnia, tom.1: Schriften zur Intellekttheorie, hrsg. B. Mojsisch, Hamburg: F. Meiner, 1977). Any suggestions or criticisms would be welcome.

With best wishes,


PS: I now attach some notes that may be of some interest: Notes on Dietrich of Freiberg
