|Description||Lectionarium Pro Sanctis Diebus Et Festis (lectionary for holy days and feasts). Apparently incomplete. Coveney (see bibliographical note) suggests that the whole MS is on one hand, with the exception of f.1r. This main text is a 12th Century gothic minuscule, rather large and of varying quality, in black ink with red initials and headings. The hand on folio 1 is smaller and in a lighter ink. The parchment is of varying quality, with uneven thickness, some large holes and badly cut. |
On the modern binding is: Sermones de sanctis. saec. XII (12th century sermons on saints).
