## $\mathcal{P}_1$-covers over commutative rings

In this paper we consider the class $\mathcal{P}_1(R)$ of modules of projective dimension at most one over a commutative ring $R$ and we investigate when $\mathcal{P}_1(R)$ is a covering class. More precisely, we investigate Enochs' Conjecture for this class, that is the question of whether $\mathcal{P}_1(R)$ is covering necessarily implies that $\mathcal{P}_1(R)$ is closed under direct limits... We answer the question affirmatively in the case of a commutative semihereditary ring $R$. This gives an example of a cotorsion pair $(\mathcal{P}_1(R), \mathcal{P}_1(R)^\perp)$ which is not necessarily of finite type such that $\mathcal{P}_1(R)$ satisfies Enochs' Conjecture. Moreover, we describe the class $\varinjlim \mathcal{P}_1(R)$ over (not-necessarily commutative) rings which admit a classical ring of quotients. read more
