A 15th-century manuscript of 13th-century meditations on vice. The work focuses on the proper manner of living without sin, mostly through an examination of the conscience, and the types of sins and vices inherent in many people. Begins by referring to the seven cardinal sins (p. 1). Some of the vices listed include fornication (p. 1), adultery (p. 14), and pride (p. 128). The work also discusses the sins of women in particular (p. 15-21). Includes some discussion on virtues, as well, such as valor (p. 244). Divided into a series of smaller treatises, some initials are slashed in red ink, and some headings are in red ink, as well. Contains marginal notes in another hand. Has blank spaces for larger initials throughout. Leaf on inside back cover contains recipes.
