William of Lucca

William of Lucca (Guglielmo da Lucca) (died 1178) was an Italian theologian and scholastic philosopher. He taught at Bologna, in the third quarter of the twelfth century [Jean Leclercq, "The Renewal of Theology", p. 80, in Robert L. Benson, Giles Constable, Carol Dana Lanham (editors), "Renaissance and Renewal in the Twelfth Century" (1991)] . He wrote a commentary on "The Divine Names" of Pseudo-Dionysius [ [http://www.the-orb.net/encyclop/culture/philos/coulter.html ORB ] ] , combining ideas from Gilbert de la Porrée with those of Eriugena [Peter Dronke, "A History of Twelfth-Century Western Philosophy" (1988), p. 354.] . He is also the presumed author of "Summa artis dialectice", a textbook of logic, influenced by Abelard [George Henry Radcliffe Parkinson, Stuart Shanker, "Routledge History of Philosophy" (1999), p. 175.] [Eleonore Stump, "Boethius's in Ciceronis Topica" (1988), p. 131.] .
