Summary Catalogue no.: 1858



A Latin Vulgate Bible, with prefaces, in a minute hand: the New Testament begins on fol. 390v. There are many marginal notes in a nearly contemporary hand. At fol. 495v follows A-Bez of the Interpretationes nominum Hebraicorum, the rest being lost. At fol. iv verso-v are three sets of memorial verses about the books of the Bible (begg. 'Pentateuch. Josue. Judicum', 'L Genesis, minus Exo decem', 'Quinque libros Moysi. Josue'): at fol. v verso an account of the Lord's Brethren (beg. 'Nota quod Anna & Esmeria fuerunt sorores'): on fol. i verso are theological notes: all these memoranda are only slightly later than the text.
