Video Orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's LJS 384, a treatise in 4 books on astronomy, geography, meteorology, and medicine, and also contains several maps and diagrams. De philosophia mundi was written by William of Conches, who lived from ca. 1080 until ca. 1150. This manuscript has been dated to ca. 1150, which makes it one of the earliest surviving copies of this text, and it could have been written during William's lifetime. The main text is followed by a work on Gospels attributed to Hugh of Saint-Victor.
