(fol. 2) Miracles of the Virgin (?)
Twenty-eight lines of verse from two different texts, reminiscent of the South English Legendary, and perhaps once circulating with it. The first text (recto) has a Jew desecrating a Christian object and casting it into a pit, then (verso) a miraculous voice telling how the Jew came to a bad end. The second text (recto, but probably not the next) has Our Lady embracing and kissing a faithful clerk, then (verso) the clerk having a vision of being brought out of this world to paradise which, with gratitude to our Lady, he reports to a bishop.
Origin: 's. siv-xv or a little later' (Hanna)
