Willelmus de Monte Lauduno, De sacramentis; Giovanni Calderini, Tabulae auctoritatum et sententiarum Bibliae; canon law; etc. Germany (?Erfurt), late 14th or early 15th century.

Contents

Language(s): Latin

After fol. ii is a fifteenth-century table of contents (lifted from a pastedown or endleaf), with ex libris, listing as the first item, now missing, 'Concordancie breuissime ex biblia contra aliqua vicia'. This presumably refers to one of the removed endleaves (see below).

1. (fols. 1ra-87vb)
Willelmus de Monte Lauduno, De sacramentis
Incipit: Karissimo filio suo ac socio speciali domino ... Presens opus dilecti
Incipit: Signatum est super nos […] Hoc ergo signum luminosum vultu dei signatum
Explicit: ut accedat quod legitur extra de baptismo maiores circa medium de con. di. i. nullus cum similibus etc. AMEN.
Final rubric: [later hand] Explicit Willelmus de Monte Lauduno(?) de sacramentis

Rest of fol. 87vb blank.

2. (fols. 88ra-96rb)

Three items presented as if comprising a single text on confession:

2.1. (fols. 88ra-94va)
⟨Paulus de Hungaria (?)⟩, Summa de poenitentia
Incipit: Qvonima circa confessiones animarum pericula sunt et quandoque difficultates emergunt. Ideo ad honorem dei sanctique Nycolai
Incipit: (brief index, fol. 88ra) Quo tempore incepit confessio p. 1
Incipit: Videamus quo tempore incepit confessio et de hoc sunt quinque opiniones

Bloomfield 4919; Kaeppeli 3184; pr. in Bibliotheca Casinensis (1873–94), 4. 191–215. Variously attributed in the manuscripts, which preserve different versions: see H. Weisweiler, 'Handschriftliches zur Summa de penitentia des Mag. Paulus von St. Nicolaus', Scholastik 5 (1930), 248–260. The text here agrees with the printed edition as far as the chapter 'de impedimentis confessionum', ending (fol. 94ra) 'non sum sicud ceteri homines' (ed. p. 201, col. 2, lines 11–12). There then follow chapters 'De desperatione' (beginning 'Sequitur de desparacione et est sciendum quod duplex est desperacio...') and 'De principalibus vitiis' (ending 'mora, delectatio, sensus'). The same version is found in Augsburg, UB, Cod. II. 1.2o 143, and Munich, BSB, Clm 3596, for which see below, arts. 2.3 and 7.

Bookmark (?) (fragment of another paper manuscript) between fols. 93 and 94.

2.2. (fols. 94va-95va)
Sermon
Incipit: Descendens iesus de monte. Luc. vj. Primo notandum est quid sit mons de quo descendit, 2o qualiter descendit, 3o ad quid descendit. Nota quod mons est triplex

II. 1.2o 143, directly following Paulus de Hungaria, and with a similar final rubric ('Explicit tractatus breuis de speciebus confessionis edite Bononie per reuerendum magistrum Iohannem Andree'). To be distinguished from the similar text of Simone Fidati, Peccata cordis, oris, operis, et omissionis (Bloomfield 845).
