Postilla litteralis in uetus et nouum testamentum (excerpts)
Disputatio de censibus perpetuis
Notes on canon law
CCCC MS 506 was written in Prague between 1393 and some time after 1399. It contains a large collection of sermons by Guibert of Tournai OFM (d. 1284), extracts from the Postilla litteralis in uetus et nouum testamentum by Nicholas of Lyre OFM (d. 1349), a Disputatio de censibus perpetuis by Michael Blide, doctor decretorum of the University of Prague in 1399, and finally a canon law tract. The dating is based on a colophon at the end of the sermons and on the text by Michael Blide. The book has a contemporary binding. This volume is part of the Elbing collection; a group of manuscripts which belonged to a Brigittine convent at Elbing (Elblag), near Gdansk. The collection was donated to Corpus Christi College by Richard Pernham (1583?-1628) or his wife, Mary, whose signature is in many of these books.
