Johannes Buridanus, Quaestiones in libros Rhetoricorum Aristotelis,

hrsg. von G.Krieger und F.B. Stammkötter in zusammenarbeit mit B.Preben-Hansen: Bulletin de Philosophie Médiévale 2000 (42), 39

The edition in charge of F.B. Stammkötter was supported by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and discontinued in 2001





1990-1991, engagement (Sten Ebbesen, docent & Bernadette Preben-Hansen, undergraduate student), his spontaneously initiative, 15-12-1989, at the University of Copenhagen

1993, on behalf of Hannah Krogh Hansen, the Department Secretary, Sten Ebbesen as the Director refused me access to our scientific SAXO library, Greek and Latin and to the relevant microfilms (documentation at the University of Copenhagen 1994-2017)

1994-1999, Disciplinary Measures Towards Students at The University of Copenhagen (by Sten Ebbesen as the Director, on behalf of Hannah Krogh Hansen, the Department Secretary)

2004, the University of Copenhagen granted me a personal library & microfilm permission: The SAXO Library, Greek and Latin - at the Royal Library of Copenhagen; 2011, the library permission was confirmed by the Danish Parliamentary Ombudsman

2015, the library was effectuated by the University of Copenhagen. Waiting time: 3-8 weeks per item (2012-2015); 1-2 weeks per item (2015-2017); microfilms (2012): 3-12 months per item. Professor Sten Ebbesen remains refusing me access to our SAXO library and to our microfilms (Hanne Møller, 2015). I am so sad over this story, since I loved Sten Ebbesen very dearly. I don’t understand why he wish to harm me so ultimately: on my life and working situation for so long time since 1993, and even today in 2017
