In most incunabula editions contains an authorial preface signed by
one Frater Guillermus, Dominican of Paris. The cause of the
misatribution is uncertain, but the Postilla were rather compiled by
the Nuremberg Dominican Johannes Herolt. The compilation was
made for members of the clergy seeking commentary on the lessons
read at services throughout the year.
