This chapter explores the teachings of Jacopo Zabarella at the University of Padua during the sixteenth century. Zabarella's lectures of Aristotelian logic and natural philosophy were comprehensive, his writings prolific, and his arguments often provocative but convincing despite teaching in a university known for medicine. His authority as an original and critical advocate of Aristotle and the Aristotelian commentary tradition was widely recognized by academics of Roman Catholic and Protestant persuasion alike. His published works in Italy were soon republished by transalpine publishers and covetously read by Protestant scholars, who were in need of powerful logical tools in their theological debates with scholars of rival and opposing confessions. The chapter specifically draws from the two volumes coming from The I Tatti Renaissance Library, a compilation of Zabarella's works in English. Both of the volumes contain the works De methodis (On Methods) and De regress (On Regressus).

Keywords:   Jacopo Zabarella, University of Padua, sixteenth century, Aristotelian logic, natural philosophy, medicine, Italy, The I Tatti Renaissance Library, De methodis, De regressu
