- A Commentary may only be read once the summa has been exhausted. You may only benefit once from reading the Commentary.
- A Tractatus may only be read once with benefit. However, there is no level limit; these may be read at any time.
Mundane Librarian: None
Acting Librarian/Scribe: Rissa of Merinita
- The Malleable Nature of Power Summa L10 Q10
- Written by Uriel of Bonisagus
- A somewhat abstruse approach to Muto with heavy focus on meta-magic effects and applications of Vim. Because of this, it never became a popular summa as beginners often found the references opaque.
- Readers with a Vim score of less than 5 treat the summa as Q7. Readers with Vim score of 10 or higher treat the summa as Q13.
- May be read after completing the summa as a Vim Tractatus Q10
- Basic Magical Healing Summa L10 Q15
- Written by Gregorius Domus of Tytalus
- A rather mocking and insult-laden tome, this summa focuses largely on disease prevention and cure and applications of Corpus. While the authour tends to assume readers possess an intelligence only slightly higher than a sloth, the examples are actually quite excellent if the reader can ignore the authour's acerbic style.
- May be read as a Medicine tractatus Q15 after completion of the summa.
- The Ties that Bind L15 Q10
- Written by Hyperion of Tytalus
- This summa is a set of books written in the late 12th century and demonstrates an advanced understanding of Vim. As someone who had gone through several Twilight episodes and survived, this magus decided to share his experiences for the purposes of enlightening the most emphemeral of Arts.
- The Plunder of Twenty Geese (MuAn 15) (Covenants p.96)
- Fatal Register (MuAn 20) (Covenants p.100)
- Hide to Parchment (ReAn 15) (Covenants p.96)
- Binding the Mundane Codex (ReAn 15) (Covenants p.97)
- Binding the Hermetic Codex (ReAn 15) (Covenants p.97)
- The Weightless Transportation of Books (ReAn 15) (Covenants p.100) (Untranslated)
- Thoughts Distinctly Burned (ReAq 10) (Covenants p.97) (Untranslated)
- Chamber of Spring Breezes (CrAu(Ig) 10) (Covenants p.100)
- The Useful Inculcator of Comments (ReHe 4) (Covenants p.99) (Untranslated)
- Conjuring the Nobleman's Manor, CrTe 35, Ritual
- Aegis of the Hearth, ReVi 20, Ritual
- Basic Laboratory Design Summa L5 Q10
- Written by Desiderius of Verditius
- This summa is aimed at getting a magus to a solid theoretical foundation without the bells and whistles of many other magic theory books. Each chapter builds on the previous until, by the end, the magus reaches a solid journeyman level of magic theory. Because of the authour's house, many of the examples and references tend to have a focus on item creation and having a workshop.
- Veriditius magi who study from this summa treat it as a Q12 summa because of the references.
"Of The Nature and Type of the Fae" Unknown author. Despite its ponderous title, this is a book written on the sub-juvenal level, meant to teach children to read. The descriptions of the Fae included, however, are fairly accurate.
