An edition of the complete works of William of Conches was launched in 1988 by the late Abbot Dom Eligius Dekkers osb, founder of Corpus Christianorum. Dom Dekkers entrusted Édouard Jeauneau with the care of that edition. The role of Édouard Jeauneau, as director of the project, has been to find editors for each of the various works of William and to ensure that a certain harmony of style is observed. A summary of his efforts may be found in the recent edition of the Glosae super Platonem (CCCM 203, pp. X-XV).
