First work is astrologically concerned with the popes beginning with Nicholas III (1277-1280) and leaving off at Benedict XI (1303-1304); it has generally been dated to 1303-1305. Its incipit claims the work was translated from Hebrew to Latin by Dandalus Ylardensis. Second work is a commentary on a set of prophecies, possibly the Vaticinia de summis pontificibus. Third work is a section of the Vaticinia, a series of manuscript prophecies concerning the papacy which was originially derived from the Byzantine Leo Oracles (12th century) and augmented with further prophecies in the 14th century, pertaining to Innocent IV. Fourth work is a commentary, most likely by Joachim de Fiore, about the papacy. Fifth and sixth works concern prophecy as well, and were claimed to have been brought by an angel while Cyril was saying mass.
