Viridarium consolationis; [manuscript].

Title:
Viridarium consolationis [manuscript].
Abstract:
Two anonymous and unidentified treatises on virtues and vices. The first work (f. 1r-25v), which is not identical with the Viridarium consolationis by William of Auvergne (d. 1249), draws chiefly from the usual authorities such as Cicero, Boethius, "Il Filosofo" (i.e., Aristotle), Valerius Maximus, Gregory, St. Augustine and St. Isidore. It deals mostly with the cardinal virtues, but seems to deviate considerably from the ordinary texts of this type in its heavy emphasis on giustizia. The second work (f. 25v-52v) deals chiefly with the consolations offered by the Christian faith.
