The De doctrina Aristotelis is a collection of philosophical notes composed by the Dominican friar, Girolamo Savonarola (1452-1498). The text is preserved in the Conventi Soppressi D.VIII.985 manuscript of the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze (15th-16th c.) and gathers quotations and brief summaries from genuine and pseudo-epigraphical Aristotelian works. Clearly, this text was never intended to be disclosed, since the passages – together with a relevant number of sententiae from Aristotelian florilegia – are simply listed, without any specific conceptual background or comments by the author. Following a brief presentation of the De doctrina Aristotelis, the article will focus on the importance that Savonarola assigns to the pseudo-Aristotelian works, especially the De mundo ad Alexandrum regem and the De causis proprietatum elementorum: these two works are employed to highlight key passages in the sermons on the book of Ezekiel.
