- Sentenças proferidas pelo Santo Officio, tomo primero [manuscript].
- Accounts of 13 different trials of the Inquisition taking place between the years 1603 and 1706 in Lisbon, Goa, Coimbra, and Rome. Most of the cases involve "new Christians" who have relapsed into Judaism. Of these, most are sentenced to be burned at the stake, being found either unrepentant or repeat offenders. Two men are also sentenced to be burned at the stake for engaging in sodomy with multiple male partners. The other offenses involve three individuals convicted of dealing with the devil and sentenced to some combination of confiscation of goods, incarceration, and in the case of father Antonio da Fonseca, excommunication. There is also one case (f. 83r-87r) of an individual practicing clairvoyance and being sentenced to receive remedial religious instruction. The spine and title page (f. ii recto) identify this manuscript as Volume I but no other volume is present in the collection.
