MS. Hamilton 28
Summary Catalogue no.: 24458
Schneyer III.843–64 (this ms. listed), nos. 352–569, here numbered 1–261 in arabic, the numbering corrected in several places. Schneyer no. 402 does not occur and is replaced (fols. 52va-53ra) by a sermon on the same theme also found in Graz, UB, 176 (Schneyer, VII.245, no. 246). Nos. 544, 550, 554 do not occur; no. 563 seems to be differently structured; and between parts 1 and 2 of no. 551 is an additional sermon (fols. 286vb-287vb, see below). The end of 496 (numbered 186 in ms.), nos. 497–500, and the beginning of 501 (numbered 193 in ms.) are missing due to loss of leaves between fols. 224 and 225.
There is a German gloss (turbacio, vorwerrunge) on fol. 112v.
