De prouidentia Dei (transl. by Ambrogio Traversari OSB Camald. (Ambrose of Camaldoli))
Sermo de dignitate primi hominis
Tract on Tribulation
The main text in CCCC MS 458 is the De providentia Dei by John Chrysostom (c. 347-407) in the translation by Ambrogio Traversari (Ambrose of Camaldoli) OSB Camald. (1386-1439). This is followed by a sermon by John Chrysostom and the Historia Griseldis by Francesco Petrarca (1304-74). At the end of the book is a short tract on tribulation. The manuscript was made in the southern Netherlands, and the sermon by John Chrysostom has a colophon dating its writing to 1468. A coloured woodcut of the Doubting of Thomas has later been pasted into the book.
