Abstract

Nine manuscripts preserving Avicenna's Kitāb al-Šifāʾ share a set of identical marginal glosses to the section of Logic. One of these manuscripts reports, at the end of each of the glosses, a certificate of transmission ascribing them to the theologian and philosopher Faḫr al-Dīn al-Rāzī (d. 606H/1210), which provides some material evidence of the existence of a flourishing exegetical activity on the Kitāb al-Šifāʾ during the twelfth-thirteenth century, in spite of the apparent lack of commentaries on the text in that period. The present paper provides an edition of the so far unknown ḥāšiyāt to Avicenna's Kitāb al-Šifāʾ by al-Rāzī, with an attempt at reconstructing their tradition and contextualizing them within al-Rāzī’s exegetical and teaching activity.

Résumé

Neuf manuscrits qui préservent le Kitāb al-Šifāʾ d'Avicenne partagent le même groupe de notes marginales à la section de Logique. Au bout de chacune de ces gloses, un des manuscrits préserve aussi un certificat de transmission qui les attribue au théologien et philosophe Faḫr al-Dīn al-Rāzī (m. 606H/1210), ce qui nous fourni une évidence matérielle de l'existence d'une florissante activité exégétique sur le Kitāb al-Šifāʾ entre le XIIe et XIIIe siècle, malgré le manque apparent de commentaires sur le texte dans cette période-là. Cet article offre une édition des ḥāšiyāt d'al-Rāzī au Kitāb al-Šifāʾ d'Avicenne, dont l'existence était ignorée jusqu’à présent, en essayant au même temps de fournir une reconstruction de leur tradition et de les contextualiser dans le cadre de l'activité exégétique et didactique d'al-Rāzī.
