Martianus Minneus Felix Capella was a Latin prose writer of Late Antiquity (fl. c. 410–420), one of the earliest developers of the system of the seven liberal arts that structured early medieval education. His single encyclopedic work, De nuptiis Philologiae et Mercurii ("On the Marriage of Philology and Mercury", also called De septem disciplinis "On the seven disciplines") is an elaborate didactic allegory written in a mixture of prose and elaborately allusive verse.
Those supporting the attribution have pointed out the doctrinal confluences between these texts and Bernardus' epic prosimetrum, the Cosmographia; those rejecting it point to substantial doctrinal discrepancies. Too little attention on both sides has been directed toward the twelfth-century evidence in favor of the attribution.
Martianus remained the ancient authority on the liberal arts from his re-discovery at the beginning of the ninth century through to the close of the twelfth. Expositio super librum Martiani Capelli de nuptiis phylologie. An Exposition on the book by Martianus Capella on the marriage of Philology.
