Peter Alfonsi
(Petrus Alphonsus)

Here you can obtain the text of Peter Alfonsi’s Disciplina Clericalis. A convert from Judaism, he wrote this, his best-known text, in the early twelfth century in his native Spain. There are several editions of this work, but perhaps the most scholarly is still that of Hilka and Söderhjelm from nearly a century ago: eds. Alfons Hilka & Werner Söderhjelm, ‘Petri Alfonsi Disciplina Clericalis,’ I: Lateinischer Text, in Acta Societatis Scientiarum Fennicæ 38/4 (1911). Their text has the added advantage of being out of copyright, and so can be made available here.

You can download the text (46k *.zip file) by clicking here.
