Anon. Writings on philosophy, in Latin. 12th-century manuscript fragment on vellum, probably written in France. 2 ff., joined, each 16.5 x 26 cm. Provenance unknown.

Anon. Writings on Philosophy. Incip. Ipse itaque humane anime mentem dedit unde ratio et intellegentia in infante sopita est quod a modo quasi nulla sit excitanda scit atque serenda etatis accessu qua sit scientie capax atque doctrine et habilis perceptioni ueritatis et amoris boni qua capacitate huriat sapientiam uirtutibusque.

Little is known about this fragment, and there is not even a record as to when it was acquired by the University. It has been trimmed and folded, and from its physical state it seems certain that it was at one time bound into a book binding, and so preserved. It was catalogued by the library in 1960, although it seems to have been in the vault well before that time, since there is a reference to it in an insurance list of 1950.
