The Miracles of St. John Capistran

Remark on quoting from
the miracle collections

In the discussion which follows, frequent reference will be made to six surviving fifteenth- and early sixteenth-century miracle collections whose contents amount to more than 500 different miracle stories. The quite complex questions regarding their genesis and mutual relationship will be treated in detail in chapters 4 and 5. The reconstructed stemma is given in Appendix 1. For ease of reference I give here an operative list of these collections with basic explanations only, together with the sigils used in the main text.

1. The earliest posthumous collection of Capistran's miracles was completed in April 1460 by an ad hoc committee drawn from the townsmen of llok; it survives both in the original bound into codex I.H.44 of the Biblioteca Nazionale, Naples (abbr. N) and in a fifteenth-century copy kept by the Bibliothèque nationale in Paris as codex Misc. Lat. 5620 A (abbr. P).1

2. Another collection was completed probably at the turn of 1460 and 1461, presumably by the Hungarian Franciscan John of Geszt [János Geszti]; larger than N and partly overlapping it, it survives in codex 1/6/1 of the convent Sant'Isidoro in Rome (abbr. la).2

3. The first systematized posthumous collection was composed between April 1460 and February 1461, probably by the Hungarian Franciscan Peter of Sopron [Peter Soproni]. It survives in codex VIII.B.35 of the Biblioteca Nazionale, Naples (abbr. Na).

4. One more collection of Capistran's posthumous miracles was put together during the period May to November 1461, again by John of Geszt, and survives in the same codex 1/6/1 from the convent of Sant'Isidoro (abbr. lb).3
