Prophecy details the election of Pope Leo X in the conclave, his subsequent actions in the European church (specifically in Italy, France, and Germany) during his tenure as pope, and predicts the events following Leo's death and the election of Pope Clement VII in 1523. Possibly given to Giovanni Todeschini Piccolomini (Ad Reverendissimum Cardinalem Senense, f.2r), who was the archbishop of Siena (1503-1529) and participated in the conclave of 1523. Appears to have been part of a larger manuscript, as pages are faintly foliated 29-32 in a modern hand. Leaves have been mended along lower and inside edges with strips of modern paper.
