      • Front



    Along top of frontispiece ex libris of a Benedictus Schenckelius, Pastor in Schaffen s.m. Most likely, this is the Benedickus Schenkelius from Boxtel, who entered the abbey of Tongerlo, and served as the pastor of Hogeloon and Hapert from 1670-1675, and was also (well 1675) penitentiary of Duffel and pastor of Schaffen bij Diest. He died at Tongerlo in 1694 [van Gils, p. 340].

    Stamp of Collegio S.J. The codex almost certainly passed through the Jesuit College of Osnabrück on the way to Brazil.
