Collection of works, the most extensive of which is a dialogue between a "good German" and a "Bohemian friar" about usury and contracts, divided into twenty-two parts or "synods." There is commentary on consilia, a continuation of the dialogue under the heading "conferentia", the setences of Catherine of Siena, and a short treatise "contra Cassandra." The dialogue has extensive references, underlining, and marginal notations. There is a note on fol. 3r, purportedly in Gaetano Marini's hand, identifying the manuscript as "Opera morale sulli contratti usurarij e [su'cambj ?] con altre materie e opera di un pre Domenicano Tedescho che si chrismata [P?] Crisostomo Farzel" and "la materia dell'usure relative ad alium contratti di Germania."
