Analysis of Content

a1r [Title-page.]

a2r [Table of contents.]

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

a2v 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.

b2r [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.

b4r Augustinus [pseudo-]: ‘Inuocatio ad deum pro auxilio.’ Incipit: ‘[B]enedictus et misericors deus, qui reuocas errantes et sanas penitentes . . .’

b4v Augustinus [pseudo-]: Psalterium. PL XL 1135-8.

b6v [Augustinus pseudo-]: Septem psalmi ad laudem gloriosae virginis Mariae. Incipit: ‘[D]omina clementissima, ne in furore dei sinas me eternaliter condempnari . . .’

b8r Augustinus [pseudo-]: De virtute psalmorum. Incipit: ‘[S]i vis penitentiam pro peccatis tuis agere . . .’ see A‑581.

Leaf c6v contains the text of c6r with the exception of the first line and the first syllable of the second. BMC IX 126 notes that it was ‘printed from a page of type in an entirely different setting, which was intended to serve as a bearer and was inked by mistake.’
