Description

Bonaventura was a Franciscan monk living in Brescia at the end of the fifteenth century. His short theoretical treatise includes a chapter devoted to differentiae, "Concerning the terminals of the tones" (Chapter 37). Bonaventura only includes one differentia per mode, potentially indicating an attempt to standardize the system of differentiae.
