Manuscript Summary
This codex, written by several scribes, contains theological writings very different from one another in seven parts interrupted by empty pages. Part I: pp. 114 table of contents and pp. 17124 the text of De decem praeceptis by Heinrich von Friemar, pp. 124 Septem dona sancti spiritus contra septem peccata mortalia, pp. 125139 Tractatus de confessione et de peccatis mortalibus et venialibus, p. 139 Quid sit vera poenitentia et confessio, pp. 139140 a theological note and further notes on p. 142, pp. 143173 the treatise De proprietate ad canonicos regulares religiosa by the theologian, astronomer and church politician Heinrich Heinbuche von Langenstein (1325–1397) as well as pp. 177186 a fragment of the Expositio regulae S. Augustini. Part II contains a fragment of De sacramento ordinis on pp. 187199, pp. 199257 Notabilia super Cantica Canticorum by Frater Johannes, followed on pp. 258260 by the sermon Omnia parata sunt venite ad nuptias. Parts III (pp. 261284), IV (pp. 285316) and V (pp. 317340) contain more sermons. Part VI consists of 14th and 15th century Sibyllenweissagungen in German, (Von Kung Salomo wishait, pp. 341361) and a fragmentary letter (pp. 361362). Part VII contains moralizations from the Historia septem sapientium on pp. 365376. In a note on p. 379 Abbey librarian Ildefons v. Arx reports about the illness and death of the former Abbey librarian Johann Nepomuk Hauntinger in the year 1823. An entry in the top margin of p. 1 attests that the manuscript was already in the St. Gall monastery in the 15th century. (nie)
