Description

This manuscript is from 1478 and was created in Austria. It is a copy of St. Thomas Aquinas Quaestiones de duodecimi quodlibet, and it is 30 cm tall, 23 cm long, and 5 cm wide. Quaestiones is a series of questions and answers, that prominent Catholic philosopher Josef Pieper describes as a “fruit of the free discussions which Thomas was so fond of launching at the university, wherein those questions are raised which stirred his age”. The book is handwritten with black ink on paper in Gothic cursive, and it is rubricated. There are also red and yellow initials throughout. The cover is black leather. In contrast to MS 200, this manuscript has a difference in material and production technique, with this being solely written on paper, as opposed to parchment and paper, and this book being rubricated along with yellow and red initials.
