The work of fourteenth-century Franciscan Andrew of Neufchateau provides a detailed catalog of the arguments prevalent during the medieval period for and against an ethics of divine commands. No manuscript edition of his text is known to exist, and only five copies of the 1514 printed edition have survived to the present. Professor Janine Marie Idziak's Latin edition and English translation of this work represents the recovery of the medieval period's most significant consideration of a divinely dictated ethical system.
