Aylin Malcolm, PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania, offers a video orientation to Penn Library’s LJS 445, Prenosticatio, by Johannes Lichtenberger. This manuscript was written in Nuremberg, Germany, after 1488, in Middle High German. It is an anthology of astrological and astronomical works, including material copied from three incunables: Johannes Lichtenberger’s Prognosticatio (Heidelberg, 1488), astrological predictions about the fate of the Church, the Holy Roman Empire, and the laity; and two editions of the calendar of Regiomontanus (Nuremberg, 1474; Venice, 1478).
