Doctrinale antiquitatum fidei
CCCC MS 90 contains books one to four of the Doctrinale antiquitatum fidei by Thomas Netter of Walden OCarm (c. 1370 - 1430) and dates to around 1427. It has been suggested that this manuscript may have been one of the books Netter gave to the London Carmelites. The work forms part of Thomas Netter's refutation of Lollard teachings. Netter was, himself, a Carmelite friar who served as the prior provincial of the Carmelite order in England, as confessor to both Henry V and Henry VI of England, and as Henry V's envoy to King Władisław of Poland and Michael Küchmeister, grand master of the Teutonic knights.
