This copy of the Summula apparently includes material not found in the Frankfurt manuscript cited by Schulte. That manuscript (Frankfurt-am-Main, Stadt- und Universitätsbibliothek, Ms. Barth. 88) ends with "... generaliter per verba de presenti." A variant of that phrase ends the section De Matrimonio in the present manuscript (f. 36r). The present manuscript then continues with sections titled De male[?] abbatis, De religiosis (f. 52v), Rationes testamenti (f. 57r), De blasfematores[?] dei vel alioris[?] sancti[?] (f. 60v) and De purificationem post partum (f. 64r).
