De pauperie Saluatoris
The De pauperie Saluatoris of Richard FitzRalph (d. 1360), archbishop of Armagh, contained in CCCC MS 382, is a text on the poverty of the mendicants in relation to the poverty taught by Christ, and the problems caused by their acquiring property and privilege. It is also found in CCCC MSS 103 and 180. The dating of this copy has been suggested as c. 1375-1400. It belonged to St Augustine's, Canterbury, and is in the fifteenth-century library catalogue of the abbey.
