Summary

A two-part manual of confession for use by a female penitent, probably in a religious order. The first part gives the form for the penitent to confess, structured in a customary way around the ten commandments, the seven mortal sins, the five senses, the twelve articles of faith, the three theological virtues, the four cardinal virtues, and the seven spiritual gifts. The text uses feminine endings and forms, and includes the penitent's confessions of sin, written in the first person and sometimes referring to wrongdoing against her sisters. The second part is a manual to guide priests through the sacrament of confession, again structured around the ten commandments, the seven mortal sins, the five senses, and the theological and cardinal virtues. References to Saint Augustine in both parts (f. 1r, 9v, 29v) may suggest that the context of this manuscript was a religious community under the Rule of Saint Augustine.
