APPENDIX 2
The ‘Rule of Piety’ (a note on the text
oilib.arb. 3.5.12)

There is one interesting and difficult textual crux in lib.arb. At 3.5.12 Green prints the following text:

lam illud quod tertio loco posuisti, quo modo non creatori deputandum sit quidquid in eius creatura fieri necesse est, regulam illatn pietatis facile non mouebit, quam1 meminisse nos conuenit, gratiarum actionem nos debere creatori nostro.

At stake is the clause in italics. Most manuscripts cited in Green’s apparatus read

regula ilia pietatis facile non mouebit

Most, but not all. Three (L, S, and Paris. 12209 (Corbeiensis)2) read regulam Mam pietatis facile non mouebit

Other manuscript readings and editors have attempted to do something with the verb:

F m 1 reads regula illa pietatis facile non mouebitur

F m 2, R, and V read regula illa pietatis facile non remouebitur

Erasmus, and ‘all printed texts since his time’ read regula illa pietatis facile commonebit

Green therefore, follows the reading he finds in three manuscripts. I give Green’s note in full (1954k 27):

I believe that here as in 2.31, L preserves the correct reading. The Clairvaux editors of S follow L, but in Y they return to corrupt tradition of a and the rest. The thought runs: “Now the third question which you posed, as to why the Creator should not be blamed for whatever is necessarily done in his creation, will not easily disturb that rule of piety which we must remember, that we owe thanksgiving to our Creator.” With the accidental loss of the

1 Two MSS (L and Y) read quia, instead of quam, but I take it that this is not a problem.

2 This last is only mentioned in the apparatus here by Green.
