Pretty clearly the author had some connection with Cologne. Who was the author? Winkelmann, noticing that a note, ffr M,• appears at the top of a folio near the end of the volume above this verse, conjectured that Matthew Paris might be the author. However, that chronicler probably was not born in Germany, and his associations in England are not known to have been with Germans. Very probably that notation simply recorded his ownership of the volume.

An anonymous copy had been in the library at Assisi for centuries; its publication in 1882 opened the question of authorship.
