Analysis of Content

a1r Alphonsus Boni Hominis: ‘Epistola prohemiolis(!)' [addressed to] Hugo [de Vaucemain], Master of the Dominican Order. See S‑049.

a1v Samuel, Rabbi: Epistola contra Judaeorum errores. Translated by Alphonsus Boni Hominis. See S‑046.

c8r Manfredis, Fredericus de: Epistola [addressed to] Galeottus de Manfredis. Incipit: ‘[F]edericus de Manfredis . . . Non debui expectare ut tuis ad me litteris pollicitum de sacerdotio domini nostri Jhesu Christi opusculum efflagitares . . .’ BSB‑Ink identified the dedicatee as Galeottus de Manfredis.

c8v [Traversarius], Ambrosius [pseudo-]: De sacerdotio Christi. Translated by Ambrosius Traversarius(?). Incipit: ‘[T]empore iustissimi et piissimi imperatoris Iustiniani . . .’ De sacerdotio Christi is given as a work of Traversarius, but is in fact an extract from the Suda doubtfully translated by him; see G. Mercati, Traversariana (Vatican City, 1939), 70-80; BSB‑Ink considers the work as genuine.
