Repertorium morale

Incipit: A a a, Domine Deus, ego nescio loqui


Compiled mid 1330s to early 1340s by Pierre Bersuire, this alphabetical list of words used in the Vulgate Bible was a massive reference work (Durham Priory' copy is nearly 2500 pages long) that would have been used as both a dictionary and an encyclopedia of Christian theology. Each word is defined and its contexts examined, moralised upon and cross-referenced within the Bible.

Sometimes called Dictionarium Biblicum or Dictionarium morale.
