The Commentary on Plato's Parmenides by Proclus (AD 412-85) is the most important extant document on the interpretation of this enigmatic dialogue in antiquity, and has had a crucial influence on all subsequent readings. In Proclus' Commentary, the Parmenides provides the argumentative and conceptual framework for a scientific theology wherein all mythological discourse about the gods can be integrated. Its exposition was therefore the culmination of the curriculum of the Platonic school. This theological reading of the Parmenides persisted, through the medium of Ficino, until the nineteenth century. Previously this important text was only accessible in the edition of V. Cousin (Paris, 1864). This new critical edition is based on an exhaustive study of both the Greek tradition and the medieval Latin translation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...this volume does the scholarly world great service, that it deserves a place in any serious collection on late antiquity philosophy, and that one must look forward greatly to the completion of this OCT project. * Harold Tarrant, The Classical Review *
at last the most important ancient commentary on Plato's Parmenides is available in a reliable text edition. In this day and age, such meticulous and patient scholarly work is becoming all too rare. * Han Baltussen, Exemplaria Classica *
