_ (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.

Johannes Andree Schindel
Lectures on Thebit Bencora's De hiis que indigent expositione antequam legatur Almagesti


‘(Prague, Archiv Pražského Hradu, O. I) Exposicio Thebiti Bencorath in precognicionibus Almagesti. Nota: Equator diei idem est quod equinoctialis circulus — tempore Sol redit ad suam (?) coniunccionem. De istis melius videbis circa theoricam planetarum et (?) practicabis si vis. Explicit exposicio Thebit precognicionum Almagesti anno domini 1412, feria prima sive die dominico 12o kal. Decembris [20 November 1412]. Eodem die Magister Ioannes Andree [Johannes Andree Schindel], doctor medicine, incepit legere librum magnum Ptolomei Almagesti in Praga. Mitte, mi domine, auxilium de sancto et de Syon, tuere me ut perficere possim quod proposui, quia volo. Me Borotyn scripsit in Zderaz [Zderaz, Bohemia] dum sibi vixit anno milleno quadringento duodeno, quo iam complebat quatuor triginta Decembres.’


Lectures on Thebit Bencora’s De hiis que indigent expositione antequam legatur Almagesti.


According to the only known MS, the personal handbook of Johannes Borotin, these lectures were given at the University of Prague in 1412, as an introduction to Johannes Andree Schindel’s lectures on the Almagest (C.1.14). The manuscript used by Johannes Andree Schindel is also extant (Cracow, BJ, 619).
