The first leaf here contains parts of sermon 178 from Augustine’s Sermones de Scripturis. Chapter six of the sermon is based on Ecclesiasticus 31,8 and part of 31,10: ‘Blessed is the rich that is found without blemish, and hath not gone after gold’, and ‘Who might offend, and hath not offended? or done evil, and hath not done it?’.

A sixteenth-century inscription indicates that the binding once contained Henricus Arnoldi’s De modo perveniendi ad veram et perfectam Dei et proximi dilectionem, most likely the only printed edition (Basel, Michael Wenssler, not after 1 December 1472, ISTC ia01061000).
