LanguageLatin, with some French (f. 185r-270v)
Selections from classical Latin works by a large variety of authors, followed by two French summaries on the history of heresy in the Church. Much of the Latin section consists of panegyrics, mostly from the authors of the Panegyrici Latini. The text is not an exact match to the Panegyrici Latini. The margins contain some notes in French in another hand, generally summarizing the Latin content. Most of the panegyrics eulogize the Emperor Constantine or other rulers. Some of the other Latin works include epigrams, poetry, plays, and satires.
