I have just learned from Timothy Noone that Romuald Green has died in Washington DC, at the age of 93.
Father Green is perhaps best known for his 1963 dissertation at Leuven, An introduction to the logical treatise De obligationibus: with critical texts of William of Sherwood and Walter Burley.
In more recent years, he contributed to the Franciscan Institute’s edition of William Ockham (OPh V and OTh VII, to be exact), and to all five volumes of the Opera philosophica of Scotus.
His funeral Mass will take place on December 19th at the Monastery of the Holy Land in Washington.
