Els manuscrits catalans de la Doctrina moral d’en Pacs


This paper analyses from a material and textual viewpoint the four preserved manuscripts containing the Doctrina moral,
a work written in the first half of the 15th century by a man from Majorca from the Pacs family. The study of these copies
gives us new information about some of the most controversial aspects of this work, such as authorship and date. The two
witnesses owned by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France are related to the Italian city of Naples, while the manuscript of
the Biblioteca de Catalunya could have been in possession of a branch of the Pacs family, the Conilleres. The codex of the
Arxiu de la Corona d’Aragó, edited by Bofarull (1857), presents a more innovative copy, with many different lessons from
the other three witnesses.
