Manuscript Summary
This codex contains the first five books of the Liber specialis gratiae by Mechthild von Hackeborn; books 6 and 7 are missing. On p. 3 there is also a fragment of the Epistola de Ihesu Christo by Ps.-Lentulus Romanus de Judea. The notes on p. 224, which name Johannes Tauler and Konrad (in the codex: Johannes) of Prussia as previous owners, suggest an origin in a Dominican environment. In the 15th century, this manuscript belonged to Ulrich Varnbüler (brother of Angela Varnbüler, who was prioress of the Dominican Convent St. Katharina in St. Gall from 1476-1509; mayor/imperial vogt of St. Gall 1481-1490).
