Magister Romanus (floruit ca. XIV-XV)
This composite manuscript with content regarding astronomy, bound in crimson sheepskin, was owned by Heinrich Amici († 1451), city physician of Basel, who bequeathed it to the city's Carthusian monastery. In addition to calculations of planetary conjunctions and eclipses, the volume also contains astronomical treatises by Pierre d'Ailly or Petrus de Alliaco (around 1350-1420). D'Ailly was a scholar and church politician and infused his theological works with astrological justifications.
