_ (the underscore) is the placeholder for exactly one character.
% (the percent sign) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character.
%% (two percent signs) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character, but not for blank space (so that a search ends at word boundaries).

At the beginning and at the end, these placeholders are superfluous.

‘Reverendissimo in Christo patri ac domino domino Bessarioni episcopo Tusculano, sanctae Romane ecclesiae cardinali, patriarcae Constantinopolitano, Ioannes de Monte Regio se offert devotissimum. Admiranti michi saepe numero vel potius graviter et inique serenti tam raros esse aetate nostra optimarum… (2v) Recte profecto meo iudicio nobiliores philosophi, o Sire, distinxerunt inter theoricam philosophiae et practicam partem — quod postremo hoc in theoreumate explorare et coepto labori modum statuerit decrevimus. Finis epithomatis Ioannis de Monte Regio in Almagestum Ptolomei.’
