Abstract:
Reformatio Sigismundi, originally written in 1439 at the alleged instigation of the Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund (1368-1437) for the Council of Basel. The text of Marston MS 273 is the vulgate version (V), composed around 1440. As with other versions, the author of this text is supposedly Friedrich von Lantnau or Lantzenau (see f. 6r), who claims to have undertaken the translation of it into German from the "original" Latin. The identity of this person is still uncertain (see Koller, op. cit., p. 6), and the idea of a Latin "original" is rejected by the editor (Koller, op. cit., p. 17).
