St John's College MS. 235 (fragment 105)
JUSTINIAN, Codex 4.45.1–46.6 (binding fragment)
4.45.1–46.6, ed. CJCiv 2:180–1.
In double columns, each column 243 × 53 mm. , with 9 mm between columns, in 46 lines to the column. Very large margins left for glosses, added, in the main informally, in a variety of later hands. No prickings; bounded and ruled in stylus.
Written in gothic textura semiquadrata, certainly continental (Italy?), s. xiii. Some of the glossing appears English, a formal anglicana/secretary mixture, s. xv, but most of it again is continental.
Headings in red, although many not provided, often because there is no space left.
At the heads of sections, 3-line alternate red and blue lombards, unflourished, with the actual text beginning with an unflourished 1-line example in the contrasting colour.
