  • Circa tertium (72 qq. = mss. 1, 3, 7; ms. 2 appears to be an abbreviation of this version, ms. 6 as well as the printed edition of 1605 pickup (after the 22 distinctions of Ad evidentiam version) with the Circa tertium version around the questions for d. 27, and ms. 4 is presumably an example of this version).
  • Et quia magister (fragmentary commentary of three questions, found at the beginning [= first 8 ff.] of mss. 1, 3, 7).

Arras, BM 400 (876) is a highly mutilated copy of what appears to be a slight reworking of the De conceptione by a certain Maturinus Clementis, O. Carm.

Pelster, “Zur Überlieferung” cit., p. 392, indicates Bruges, Bibl. epis. Theca 116 n.1 as a Spanish translation.

P. Glorieux, Répertoire des maîtres en théologie de Paris au XIIIe siècle, vol 2. (Paris, 1933), 244-48, also lists as manuscripts Munich 691 and 1502, as well as Krakow 1600, but, in the case of Munich, it is unclear what he is referring to; Krakow remains unconfirmed. Additionally, Glorieux signals a manuscript in Naples without further specification, and Chartres 428, which has since been destroyed.
