I'm not even halfway yet :-)
The following entry (no 6 only) is also illustrated in Davenport's "Book of Costume"
6.Prüfening "Vices and Virtues" Prufening Miscellany CLM 13002 f3v&f4 1158/65 (Bayerisches Stadtsbibliothek, Munich)
- Prüfening was an (influential) abbey just outside Regensburg (then capital of) Bavaria.
- Wikipedia (slightly unreliable, but so tempting, and generally giving the info i wanted most sucinctly) gives slightly differing versions of the 7 virtues and vices, but I think I can guess at most of them.
- The complete illustration is apparently (Dodwell gives examples) full of paralells and symbolism.
filia Babylonis (daughter of Babylon) with Cupiditas (greed),paralleled by Daughter of Sion (filia Syon) with caritas (charity).
A King (Lido?) with opulentia (wealth/oppulence) accompanied by fortuna (fortune), opposed by prudentia (prudence/foresight).
honortay petentia? (?)opposed by Mansvetd?(or is it M Ansu Etudo?).
potentia (might) opposed by Longanimitas (forbearance).
Gula?, (gluttony) opposed by humilitas (humililty).
voluptas (pleasure) oppossed by sobriatas (sobriety/temperance).
I think I've still got some of those pairings wrong, but I'll work on it. And I'd welcome info on who the mystery pair is.
