Textus magistri sente[n]tiarum in quatuor sectus libros partiales. Primus agit de inexplicabili mysterio summe sanctissime & individue trinitatis. Secundus tracta de rerum creatione & formatione corporalium & spiritualium & aliis rebus ad ea pertinentibus: agit pariter de lapsu hominis. Tertius agit de incarnatione verbi. Quartus tractat de sacramentis & signis sacramentalibus. Insuper in principio omniu[m] distinctionum ponuntur valde vtiles summarij necnon in margine concordantie Biblie et sanctorum patrum : item ponuntur etiam articuli erronei qui passim Parrhisius a doctoribus sacre theologie fuerunt conde[m]nati et ab ipsorum conditoribus reuocati ab anno D[omi]ni M.cclxxvij usq[ue] ad annum D[omi]ni M.dvij
Lyon, Vincent de Portonariis de Tridino de Monte Ferrato, 1527 [colophon: Lyon: Jean Moylin, 10 July 1527], 1527
A book from the library of the Monastery of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Holy Blood of Christ at Hailes (or Hayles), near Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, a Cistercian house founded in 1246 by Richard, first Earl of Cornwall, which became a major pilgrimage destination after his son Edmond gave to it in 1270 a relic of the blood of Jesus Christ which he had acquired in Germany. Approximately 380 printed books have been assigned with certainty or high probability to English and Welsh monastic houses. Of these, forty-four were in Cistercian monasteries in England (none in Wales). This is one of nine extant books from Hailes; untraced since 1937, it has yet to be seen by a modern scholar. The fine contemporary calf binding is decorated by two panel stamps associated with the London stationer Julian Notary.
