*This was not a happy project. Sten Ebbesen (b. 1946) refused me (b. 1967) working-access to the microfilms (1993ff), in spite of my fellowship: the Queen Ingrid's Roman Foundation (1992-1993) and my status as an undergraduate student of the University of Copenhagen (1986-1994/1999). However, I went into the study of the History of Medieval Logic, 11th to 14th Centuries, on my own. The best and most recent article on Buridan's Rhetoric is John Buridan on Rhetoric: The Questiones super Rhetoricam Aristotelis by Margareta Fredborg (2018).
