Two manuscripts brought together at Erfurt soon after their creation, with autograph additions by Johannes Hagen to both parts.
Originally covering only fols. 6r-214v and 215r-276; entries for fols. 1r-6r and 277r-291r were added by Johannes Hagen, followed by a note that the 'exposicio quadruplex' on Judges and Ruth is to be found in another volume (C11 in the catalogue of the Erfurt Carthusians); followed immediately by the next item.
Attributed to Hagen in the library catalogue of the Erfurt Carthusians.
Fol. 291v blank.
Fols. 1r-6r, 277r-291r hybrida currens by Johannes Hagen.
