James of Venice[1] was a significant translator of Aristotle of the twelfth century. He has been called the first systematic translator of Aristotle since Boethius.[2] Not much is otherwise known about him.[3]

He was active in particular in Constantinople;[4] he translated the Posterior Analytics from Greek to Latin in the period 1125-1150.[5][6] This made available in Western Europe for the first time in half a millennium what was then called the New Logic, in other words the full Organon.
