Higden seems to have disseminated multiple versions of his work, and five branches are designated by MS sigla A, B, C, D and E. The edited version designated E, based on Cambridge, University Library MS Ii. 3.1, undoubtedly represents Higden's final version or close to it and is based on the autograph MS HM 132. Among the other versions, that now represented by manuscripts C and D is the oldest, probably finished around 1327 and disseminated locally. Although the versions A and B are intermediate and datable to ca. 1340, they were the most popular. AB texts resemble the short CD version but have additions throughout. The E version is the fullest, and the USC manuscript preserves this text

Speculum curatorum = A mirror for curates by Ranulf Higden( Book )

12 editions published between 1340 and 2012 in English and Latin and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ranulph Higden, O.S.B. (ca. 1285-1364), well-known author of the Polychronicon, also penned several pastorally oriented treaties, namely, an Ars componendi sermones, a lengthy series of Distinctiones, an Ars Kalendarii, and a comprehensive manual of instruction called Speculum Curatorum . Last revised about 1350, the Speculum handles almost every aspect of Christian doctrine in three substantial books: the first treats the commandments; the second, the deadly sins; the third, the sacraments. This edition and translation of Higden's volume on the Decalogue shows how each comandment functions as an umbrella covering various expected and unexpected subjects. Because of the former, it is a serious explication of moral theology and canon law; because of the latter, it is a treasure trove of myth, folklore, vignettes detailing aspects of fourteenth-century life, and avuncular advice. Its definitions of intangibles - like faith, fear, and flattery - are balanced by evaluations of war, robbery, and tithing, and given zest by discussions about the degrees of superstition, the tricks of demons, and the deceitfulness of dreams. Ultimately, all provide insights into the knowledge base, the legitimate and unfounded concerns, and the sincere beliefs of later medieval England
