Anthonini Archiepiscopi Florentini in theologia illuminatissimi ... De eruditione Confessorum (Memingen: Albrecht Kunne, 1483).

Antoninus of Florence (1389-1459) entered the Dominican Order in 1405 and became Bishop of Florence in 1446. Antoninus was an eminent moral theologian; the work published in this volume is the shorter version of the text otherwise titled Confessionale «Defecerunt». This work, which was translated into Italian, Spanish and Croatian, circulated in hundreds of manuscripts and was printed many times, 71 times in the fifteenth century alone. The volume also includes a Sermo de penitencia attributed to John Chrysostom, and the Regule ad cognoscendum differentiam inter peccatum mortale et veniale by "the most famous Doctor," Henry of Hassia (Heinrich von Langenstein, 1325-97).
