Sermo primus.’ Incipit: ‘Sermones dominicales cum expositionibus euangeliorum per annum satis notabiles et utiles omnibus sacerdotibus pastoribus et capellanis qui alio nomine Dormi secure vel dormi sine cura sunt nuncupati eo quod absque magno studio faciliter possint incorporari et populo predicari incipiunt feliciter. “[D]icite filie Sion ecce rex tuus venit tibi mansuetus etcetera.” Math. xxi.
