NB: It is often written that Colard Mansion translated the work of Thomas Walleys. This is an obvious mistake. Colard Mansion added extracts from Petrus Berchorius’ Ovidius Moralizatus, which he translated from Latin into French, to the Burgundian prose of the Ovide moralise that was commissioned for Louis de Bruges, Colard’s patron.
