Uguccio etc. One of his lesser known works, the Agiographia. In it, he explains the etymologies of the months of the year and the days of the week, and the days of the month (kalends, nones, ides), and how to calculate the calendar year. He also considers saints’ days within the liturgical year and where they fall. Also included is an index of saints.

Introduction Summary: 

The editor’s Italian introduction (42 pp) notes that the work is little known among Huguccio’s works. The editor briefly summarizes the work’s structure and contents. He provides a lengthy discussion of the manuscripts in which the text survives, and upon which this edition is based. He also compares his etymological appraoch to that of Isidore of Seville.
