(fols. 1-5) decree of union between the Greek and Roman churches, 6 July 1439, with (fols. 4v-5) the 'extrema sententia' of Joseph II, Patriach of Constantinople, in an abbreviated form, as given at the end of Fantinus Vallaresso's Libellus de ordine generalium conciliorum et unione Florentina (ed. B. Schultze, Concilium Florentinum, Documenta et Scriptores, Series B, vol. II, fasc. ii, Rome 1944, pp. 101-6);
