We’re very pleased to announce that the Ordered Universe website is now hosting a downloadable PDF of the working transcript of Grosseteste’s Dicta prepared by Edwin J. Westermann and Joseph W.

The PDF is available under Resources-Dicta. We hope that this will be of service and use to all interested in the fields that the Dicta touch upon. The essential starting point for contextualising the Dicta is Professor Goering’s article: ‘Robert Grosseteste’s Dicta: The State of the Question’ in John Flood, James R. Ginther and Joseph W. Goering, eds., Robert Grosseteste and His Intellectual Milieu(Toronto: Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, 2013) pp. 64-86.
In addition, thanks to the kind offices of Gordon Jackson, Bishop Grosseteste University, his English translation will also be made available on the website – the first two volumes are to be found under the same page-heading.
