Authors/Duns Scotus/Reportatio parisiensis
From The Logic Museum
The reportatio parisiensis is the collective name given to transcriptions of the lectures on the Sentences given by Scotus in Paris. A reportatio is a student report or transcription of the original lecture of a master. A version that has been checked by the master himself is known as a reportatio examinata. (The Lectura, by contrast, are not notes made by students, but rather the lecture notes made by the master himself). There are a number of reportationes of Scotus's lectures at Paris. Scotus himself personally examined a reportatio of his lectures on Book 1, the Reportatio examinata. Note that what the Wadding edition calls Reportatio 1 is actually Book 1 of the Additiones magnae (see below).
