In the Vetus bibliotheca Floriacensis, there are two homilies on the repentant sinner in Luke 7 (according to the rubrics, ‘on Mary Magdalene'). The first is in fact an extract from the De paenitentia (or De duobus temporibus) of Laurentius, bishop of Novae, a somehow mysterious character once studied by Morin: he is most remarkable for his quite unorthodox opinions on the remission of sins and on the salvation, the former being (as Laurentius sees it) an effect not of Christ's sacrifice but of his baptism. The second homily looks very much like a pastiche of the first. It could have been produced within a Roman, Greak-speaking circle.
