This article offers a survey of the commentary tradition on Aristotle’s Meteorology at the Jagiellonian University from its foundation to the first half of the Fifteenth century. In the first part we 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 we will examine the content of the 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 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 precise some attributions previously accepted in the literature.
