This section starts on f. 46r with a prayer beginning Beatus vir cujus est auxilium. The text itself also starts on that folio with the words In verbis propositis gloriosus pater et inclitus doctor Augustinus.

It ends on f. 66r with quem affectum nobis praestare dignetur marie nliusqui est in secula benedictus. Amen. Also on that folio is the explicit, which states Explicit tractatus Magistri Henrici de Vrimaria de septem gradibus amoris.
