Begins with a preface addressed to Pope Pius V (f. 1r-2v). The author sends the first of his two orations addressed to Maximilian II to the Pope to inform him of the events of the past year, that the unconquered Emperor Maximilian may be strengthened, lest, oppressed by the counsels of impious men, he succumb to those urging the adoption of the Augsburg Confession.
