Liber aureolus de nuptiis (The Golden Book of Marriage) is a book ascribed to Theophrastus. It is mentioned in the Canterbury Tales.

It 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. [1]
