For , Spiritus prudentie among the people is gyle
For spiritus prudencie · amonge the pepile is gile
For Spiritus prudencie / a-mong þe peple is gyle.F.15.461: The scribe appears in this instance to have left the line blank after For and to have then written the black ink conclusion of the line after he had rubrished Spiritus prudencie, a practice more common toward the end of the manuscript than at the beginning when he tended to leave spaces for the rubricated
letters, as indeed he does on the following leaf. Note there that Spiritus intellectuS has extra space, while in the following line Spiritus Fortitudinis is crowded.
