Aurbach, Johannes

Summa de sacramentis.


Analysis of Content

[a1r] [Introductory note.] Incipit: ‘Hic liber satis bene dirigit pastores ac plebanos et eorum adiutores siue capellanos . . .’

[a1r] [Note by the corrector on the usefulness of the book.] Incipit: ‘Nouerint uniuersi pastores siue plebani et eorum adiutores ac alii quicumque hunc librum empturi . . .’

[a2r] Aurbach, Johannes: [Summa de sacramentis.] ‘Directorium curatorum.’ Incipit: ‘[A]d laudem Dei, animarum salutem, curatorum simplicium quoque breuem et simplicem directionem . . .’ See Schulte II 447-8 ¶ 112 no. 42. Although Schulte treats the Directorium curatorum as a different text from the Summa de sacramentis, the two are identical.
