Manuale (shorter version).


Analysis of Content

a2r [Table of contents for Manuale.]

a2v Augustinus [pseudo-]: ‘Prohemium' to Manuale. PL XL 951.

a3r Augustinus [pseudo-]: Manuale. PL XL 951-68; the shorter version, chapters 1-24 only. In this version, part of the preface has become chapter 1, and what in other versions is chapter 1 is here chapter 2. Chapters 22 and 23 (23 and 24 in the incunable) are divided differently from PL, and chapter 24 (25 in the incunable) omits the final sentence: ‘Celum, terra et omnia quae in eis sunt, non cessant mihi dicere ut amem Dominum Deum meum.' For the composition of Manuale see Wilmart, Auteurs spirituels, 195-6.

b7r [Bernardus Claravallensis pseudo-]: De interiori domo. PL CLXXXIV 546-52; chapters 38-41 only. CIBN notes that this work is also attributed to Pseudo-Augustinus, as De dulci admonitione animae.

c4v Augustinus [pseudo-]: ‘Inuocatio ad deum pro auxilio.’ Incipit: ‘[B]enedictus et misericors deus, qui reuocas errantes et sanas penitantes . . .’

c5r Augustinus [pseudo-]: Psalterium. PL XL 1135-8.

c8v [Augustinus pseudo-]: Septem psalmi ad laudem gloriosae virginis Mariae. Incipit: ‘[D]omina clementissima, ne in furore dei sinas me eternaliter condemnari . . .’

d3r Augustinus [pseudo-]: De virtute psalmorum. Incipit: ‘[S]i vis penitentiam pro peccatis tuis agere . . .’ CIBN A‑768 notes that the De virtute psalmorum consists of: (i) an extract of Alcuin's preface, at the beginning of De Psalmorum usu (PL CI 466-7), wrongly attributed to him (see A. Wilmart, ‘Le manuel de prières de S. Jean Gualbert', Revue Bénédictine, 48 (1936), 263-4, n. 4); (ii) extract from Dicta S. Augustini quot sunt virtutes psalmorum (PL CXXXI 142) [apparently attributed by PL to Remigius Autissiodorensis]; (iii) direction for reciting psalms, attributed to Hilary of Poitiers, with incipit: ‘Si quis vult Deum habere sibi propitium . . .', with incipits of Psalms. See also Lambert III 351 bis.
