This book was first known as VATICANIA DE SUMMIS PONTIFICIBUS
“In spite of its importance in the history of medieval spiritual life, manuscripts of the Vaticinia are not common on the market. A mid fifteenth-century copy was sold in these rooms, 5 December 1989, lot 100. Another, once belonging to Sir Sydney
Cockerell, appeared in H.P. Kraus, Monumenta, 1974, no.37 and In Retrospect, 1978, no.60. An early seventeenth-century manuscript was in the Phillipps sale in our rooms, 28 November 1967, lot 124, and is now in the Bodleian.” Sotheby
“The manuscript contains one of the strangest and most intriguing of medieval texts: the mystical prophecies concerning the papacy ascribed to the famous Calabrian abbot and visionary, Joachim of Fiore (c.1135-1202). The prophecies, which perhaps originated in Byzantium.”
