Biographical notes

Fulmer Mood was born in Oakland, California in August, 1898. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in American History and taught for the next forty years at University of California at Berkeley and at University of Texas at Austin. After Mood's retirement in the late 1960's, he began researching Pieter Breughel, a Renaissance Flemish painter, and Raymond of Sabunde. The Papers consist of Mood's notes taken at the British Museum in 1970 of Sabunde's only extant works, "Theologia Naturalis" and "Tabula Alphabetica." Also contained in the collection are Mood's photostatic copies of the two works in toto. Fulmer Mood died in Los Angeles, California in August, 1981.

Raymond of Sabunde was born in Barcelona, Spain at the end of the fourteenth century. He taught at the University of Toulouse from 1430 until his death in 1432 and wrote numerous works on philosophy and theology, the only extant of which are "Theologia Naturalis" and "Tabula Alphabetica." He was best known for his break down of the two subjects of philosophy and theology as two distinct areas of knowledge, combining them into 'theosophy.'
