Manuscript Summary
This manuscript from the library of the Capuchin monastery of Sion contains the Manipulus curatorum, a handbook of moral and pastoral theology for use by priests that was written in the early 1330s by Guy de Montrocher. The work was widely used in the 15th and 16th centuries. The Capuchin monastery library owns a second old copy of the Manipulus, which, however, is printed: RCap 110, an incunable from 1485 (Rom, Eucharius Silber: Hain 8192). In RCap 14, the Manipulus curatorum is followed by an endpaper, which contains a list, perhaps of dioceses, especially Italian and German dioceses. The flyleaves are parchment; they are two documents issued in Geneva in 1452, which mention, among others, a Johannes Brochuti, canon at Sion. (esc)
