Text of treatise De spiritu et anima (f. 1r-56v), erroneously attributed to St. Augustine. This appears to be identical to the treatise De anima et spiritu by an Alcherus of Clairvaux. Also includes an unidentified theological text, erroneously identified in the manuscript as St. Augustine's Soliloquia (f. 56v). There is a table of contents for this work on f. 56v-57v.
