Short description Early sixteenth century paper manuscript (>1525 - <1537), contains the second editing of the chronicle concerning the lives of the abbots of Egmond, known as the Opusculum de gestis regalium abbatum monasterii sancti Athalberti ordinis sancti Benedicti in Egmonda.
Additional remarks The Opusculum de gestis.. exists in two different editions. The first text, by Johannes a Leydis, covers the period up to 1484. The second edition extends the original text up to 1525 and also has radical changes in the original text (for example: abbot Nicolaas van Adrichem who was portrayed positively in the first edition, gets a negative judging in the second). This second edition, according to Roefs, originates from the Egmond abbey and was possibly written by Theodoricus Bosman and Balduinus de Haga.

Additional remarks Balduinus de Haga was librarian of the Egmond abbey (first half 16th century). Roefs argues he was the editor of the original text by Johannes a Leydis, using the Processus Reformationis by Theodericus Bosman. Balduinus certainly was the scribe of this manuscript Leiden, UB, BPL 1818. Possibly Theodericus Bosman, or someone close to him, has also done some editing of the chapters 90-95 (Roefs, p.44-45, 47).

Users
Intended users/audience
Specification Abbot Nicolaas of Adrichem commissioned the original first edition, which speaks positively of him. After reforms in the abbey (1490-95) a different faction ruled that may have ordered this new edition of the original text, which puts Nicolaas in a negative way.
