Augustinus Hipponensis

De conflictu vitiorum et virtutum.


Analysis of Content

a1r Augustinus [pseudo-; Ambrosius Autpertus]: De conflictu vitiorum et virtutum. ed. R. Weber, CCCM 27B (1979), 907-26 (chapters 1-26 only). See Bloomfield 455.

b3v [Jacobus de Gruytrode; Jacobus de Clusa; Gerardus de Schiedam pseudo-]: Speculum aureum animae peccatricis. Dionysius Cartusianus, Opera omnia, XLII (Tournai, 1913), 765-94; see Bloomfield 6326 and BMC IX 150-1. The Speculum animae peccatricis, sometimes falsely attributed to Dionysius Carthusiensis, is now attributed either to Jacobus de Gruytrode (see Bloomfield and DSAM VIII 37) or to Jacobus de Clusa, also recorded as Jacobus de Jüterbog or de Paradiso (see L. Meier, Die Werke des Erfurter Karthäusers Jakob von Jüterbog (Münster, 1955) and VL IV 478-87); Bloomfield suggests pseudo-Gerardus de Schiedam.
