Liber aureolus de nuptiis

Theophrastus was the supposed author of the Liber aureolus de nuptiis (The Golden Book of Marriage), an antifeminist work that was bound in an anthology with Jerome's Epistola adversus Jovinianum (Letter Against Jovinian) I.47 (PL 23: 276-278) and Walter Map's Dissuasio Valerii ad Rufinum philosophum ne uxorem ducat (The Advice of Valerius to Rufinus Not to Marry, 1180-1183). The Liber aureolus is now lost but survives in Jerome's Epistola, I.41. There is no evidence that Theophrastus (d. 287 B.C.) wrote this tract.
