obsorduit and obsurduit

    I am looking at a 12th century treatise that uses the word obsorduit when the word obsurduit would make a lot more sense. Does anyone know if the spelling of obsurdesco ever morphed into obsordesco? Or does obsordesco have any meaning other than becoming dirty or wearing out? The text I am looking at is in a critical edition based on numerous manuscripts, so it seems unlikely to be scribal error.

    What's the whole sentence?
