Abstract: This contribution contains an edition and discussion of four of Peter of Auvergne’s questions on ‘Metaphysica’ XII, which deal with the first mover, its relation to the primum mobile and, indirectly, with the proper movers of the celestial orbs. First I present some information on Peter’s questions on the ‘Metaphysica’ and on the manuscripts I have used for the edition of book XII, questions 8-11. Secondly, I briefly discuss Aristotle’s ‘Metaphysica’ XII, 6-8, the interpretations of this text by Avicenna and by Averroes, and Peter of Auvergne’s theory concerning the movers of the celestial orbs in his questions on ‘De celo’. Thirdly, I examine in detail Peter’s questions 8-11 on ‘Metaphysica’ XII and compare them with parallel passages in his questions on ‘De celo’. The appendix contains an edition of ‘Metaphysica’ XII, questions 8-11.
