There are three main issues under public discussion in Aristotelianism of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The first is methodological and relates to the role of scientific evidence; the second concerns the immortality of the soul. Both are very studied in the twentieth and twenty-first century. The third question relates to the characteristics and the role of the Prime Mover, which is God himself. This argument, which involves almost all the major scholars of humanistic Renaissance, was very little depth relatively to the other, even if it plays an important role both from a philosophical and from a theological point of view. This article discusses the thought of Elia del Medigo on this topic. The contribution of Elia del Medigo is particularly important because it marks the turning point towards recovery of the original thought of Aristotle on this issue and releases it from theological constraints of the readings in via Thomae and in via Scoti.
