Manuscript Summary:
Manuscript Summary
This extensive prayer book, probably completed over time by a single hand, contains a treatise on the canonical hours (pp. 34224) as well as a Marian office (the German version of the Officium parvum Beatae Mariae Virginis, pp. 225343). These are accompanied by sermons and shorter treatises: at the beginning, texts on the sufferings of Christ, structured according to the seven petitions of the Lord’s Prayer (pp. 133, the first page is missing); at the end of the manuscript appear the short treatise Von der seligen Dorfmagd (pp. 344346), a fragmentary treatise on the twelve virtues of the sacraments (pp. 347352), a sermon by Johannes Nider (pp. 352362), another sermon (In unser Capel die erst bredig von gehorsami, p. 363384), as well as shorter texts and textual fragments (pp. 385396). A late-medieval entry (p. 390) gives a name (das buch hadt hanns petris auch ze len). Fifteenth-century red-leather binding, detached bosses, and missing clasps; the hand-marbled pastedowns attest to a modern restoration. (mat)
