Speyer: Printer of the Gesta Christi

Abstract

In his short life, Shoults was able to collect 28 incunabula, those books printed in Europe before 1501. The books vary in typefaces, style, and quality of printing and binding. Indeed, some are typographical masterpieces; others are downright pedestrian. All but two are in Latin. Although attributed to Thomas Aquinas in the incipit (beginning), De modo confitendi et De puritate conscientiae was penned by Matthew of Kraków (c. 1335–1410), a 14th century scholar-priest. This German printing of both works was done by the mysterious ‘Printer of the Gesta Christi’ in 1472.
