_ (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.

Commentary on the Quadripartitum II


‘(Oxford, BL, Digby 57) Capitulum 10. De spatio vite. Sensus huius litere est quod vita continuatur et durat per loca plegiorum (!) et per planetas eadem loca disponentes, id est in eisdem locis maiorem dignitatem habentes — complexionis eiusdem hominis.’


A commentary on Quadripartitum III.10 (on the length of life) probably on the basis of Aegidius de Tebaldis’s translation, for ‘Haly’ is quoted several times.


Unknown. The only extant MS was copied in Oxford in the second half of the 14th c., probably c. 1374-1375.
