[rubric:] Here follows a recapitualtion of what was said above. [/rubric]
And thus we bring our book to an end. At the beginning it speaks
of Our Lord God, why he made the world and why he loved
man so much that he formed him in his image and gave him
the ability to do good and evil. And after, why He did not make
it so that man could not commit mortal sin. And how the seven
liberal arts were first invented, and of their msyteries. Then it
speaks of the three kinds of people that the ancient philosophers
considered there to be in the world. How the clergy is renewed,
and how it works and what it is. (see note) And how it differs in each of
its works. And you have heard of the creation of the world,
and of the division of the four elements that are all around it,
and which are in the firmament. And how the earth holds itself
in the middle of the firmament.
