'Schola sacrarum historiarum, ex omnibus sanctorum sancte matris ecclesie doctorum operibus fabricata, in vsum Scholasticorum pauperum edita, et nuper ab authore primo multis in locis aucta et notis marginalibus illustrata', 'Anno 1564' (but fol. 13 was not written before 1572); on fol. ii the title is given as 'Pantheologie Registrum'.

This is a manual of theology for a Roman Catholic, perhaps begun or originally written in 1564 and revised soon after 1572.

The first chapter begins, after a preface, 'Ad dignam Eucharistie perceptionem magna preparatio adhibenda est. Hester puella.'

The title on the back is 'Registrum Autumni', the latter word being added in another hand.
