Text 1: ff. 1-404v
Author: William Poul of Pagula
Title: Summa summarum
Title: Hic incipit liber primus. De summa trinitate et fide catholica,
Language(s): Latin
Incipit: Quot modis dicitur fides et quid sit fides. Dic quod fides dicitur multis modis
Explicit: sicut facit Willelmus durandus in repertorio suo, proponit questionem et remittit sine responsione ad locum de quo [catchword:] questio illa//
Notes: Text opens with prologue (Ad honorem et laudem nominis ihesu christi quod quando recolo debeo caput inclinare seu flectere genua saltim cordis) and chapter list. Text missing between ff. 301-302 with portions of 5.18-5.19, and between ff. 403-404 with a portion of 5.68; the final gathering, now missing, was probably no more than one bifolium, containing the remainder of 5.69. This manuscript has the impersonal form of "De exposicione misse," for which see L. E. Boyle, "The Oculus Sacerdotis and some other Works of William of Pagula," Transactions of the Royal Historical Society, ser. 5, v. 5 (1955) 81-110. For a survey of the known manuscripts (including EL 9 H 3) and the list of rubrics with those of Pagula's own invention signaled by a letter of the alphabet as in this manuscript, see, by the same author, "The Summa Summarum and some other English Works of Canon Law," Proceedings of the Second International Congress of Medieval Canon Law, ed. S. Kuttner and J. J. Ryan (Vatican 1965) 415-456.
