PDF (4004Kb)Accepted Version


Chapter 1 considers the importance of the manuscript and looks at pre-vious research; it assesses how that research is now out-of-date, has not kept up with newer knowledge and codicological methodology and identifies uncorrected inconsistencies and inaccuracies. It sets out aims and purposes for this current study along codicological, literary and socio-literary lines.

Chapter 2 provides a general description of the manuscript before considering more specifically its Bavarian dialect and possible Nuremberg provenance. Questions of dating are also considered. A list of contents is provided and its structure examined.

Chapter 3 looks at the background to the manuscript, Nuremberg in the fifteenth century, and attempts to gauge the owner of the manuscript’s place within that society before analysing the religious, moral and social themes treated in the works contained in the manuscript.
