Analysis of Content

a1r [Table of contents.]

a2r ‘Tabula sermonum.’

a3r [Petrus de Palude pseudo-]: Sermones quadragesimales thesauri novi. Incipit: ‘  “[C]onuertimini ad me in toto corde vestro in ieiunio et fletu et planctu et scindite corda vestra et non vestimenta vestra”, scribitur Johel ii capitulo [Ioel 2,12-13]. Et legitur hodierna die pro epistolari officio . . .’ Explicit: caro mea exultauerunt in deum viuum, etc. See Schneyer, Repertorium, V nos 334-427 only. Fournier has stated that these collections of sermons are not by Petrus de Palude: see Paul Fournier, ‘Notes tirées des sermons inédits du frère prêcheur Pierre de la Palu', in Mélanges Albert Dufourcq (Paris, 1932), 109-23, at 109. André Duval, ‘Pierre de la Palu', DSAM 12/2 (1986), cols 1631-4, has suggested that the Sermones de sanctis and the Easter sermons in the Sermones de tempore are by Petrus, while the rest are spurious.
