Footnotes

  • Petrus de Rosenhaym was a monk at the Benedictine abbey of Melk. The Roseum memoriale, composed in Latin distichs, is a retelling of the Bible stories in a distilled version, intended as an aid for the use of preachers. The hexameters of each section of the summary form an acrostic of the letters of the alphabet. It is not known where and by which press this edition was printed. ISTC gives Southern Germany and a date of c.1480-1490, GW tentatively suggests Oberrhein, 1483, and Proctor attributes it to Ludwig Von Renchen in Cologne.
