A copy of Augustine's work De genesi contra manichaeos, written in Carolingian minuscule during the first third of the 9th century at the Abbey of St. Gall. The numerous glosses in Latin were added during the 11th century; frequent supposition of their attribution to St. St. Gall monk Ekkehart IV. appears questionable. At the end of the text is an apology by an inexperienced scribe. Original Carolingian binding.

Genève, Bibliothèque de Genève, Comites Latentes 15 : Liturgical Psalter

De Périgord Talleyrand, Joseph Vitta, Alfred Chester Beatty, Christophorus Orimina, D'Oderisio Roberto & Bernard Quaritch Ltd. (London)
This incomplete liturgical psalter was made between 1335 and 1350 in Naples. The unusual decorations are the work of the artist Christoforo Orimina. Because the manuscript contains three different coats of arms, the original owner (a member of the Angevin court in Naples) can not be definitively named. After changing hands many times during the 19th and 20th centuries, the manuscript was acquired in 1968 by the owner of the collection "Comites Latentes" ("Hidden Friends")...

Aurelius Augustinus, Eccardus IV, Sangallensis & Eccardus IV, Sangallensis
