Dionysius, Michael (ca. 1565-1566)
This volume contains four texts: 1. (pp. 1–149) Transcriptions of lectures by Michael Dionysius about the Libri magistri sententiarum (Peter Lombard's sentences), prepared by Mauritius Enk (1538-1575) of the Abbey of St. Gall.

(pp. 205–226) Canon law treatise about priests living in relationships similar to marriage (Quid sit sentiendum de concubinariis), written by a later (?) scribe. On p. 220 a short poem in distichs, addressed to priests, (Ad quemvis sacerdotem, Inc. Huc age, tende gradus) with the exhortation to read the booklet repeatedly and to follow the text's indications.
