Provenance Information
1492 (Start) Bentivoglio, Giovanni, 1443-1508 (as Giovanni II Bentivoglio)
Dedication copy (and in all likelihood autograph) of this commentary, written for Giovanni II Bentivoglio (1443-1509), ruler of Bologna from 1463 to 1506. It is possible that Bentivoglio’s arms might have figured in the lower margin of f. 1: this portion of the manuscript has been cut out (see paper restoration on f. 2); colophon at end of manuscript also indicated the work is dedicated to Giovanni II Bentivoglio (see record for Latin transcription); Giovanni II Bentivoglio also mentioned in dedicatory preface, f.1. (see record for Latin transcription)
(No Date) clerics?
Near contemporary inscription copied on upper part of upper pastedown concerning clerics (?): “Nota hic textum clarum quod interdicto clero non intellegitur interdictus populus...”
