Excerpts from and commentaries on the Liber bellorum Domini; contains articles 105-112, 192-195 and 142-148. Due to the date, this cannot be the Liber bellorum Domini of St. William of Bourges (1150-1209). Articles 105-112 and 192-195 concern the Albigensian crusade. According to the dealer's description of the manuscript, much of this section might be quoted or derived from the Historia Albigensium of Pierre de Vaux-de-Cernay. Articles 142-148 (f. 24v-32r) concern the 8th-century martyrs Amelius and Amicus. According to the dealer's description and Rudolf Hirsch's notes, this was first printed in the Speculum historiale of Vincent of Beauvais, XXIV, 162-166, 169. Contemporary and later marginalia throughout, much appearing Spanish in origin, particularly of the 16th-17th centuries.
