Manuscript: Canonical Epistles and Apocalypse


Germany (Rhine?), 12th century. Manuscript of James, 1-2 Peter, 1-3 John, Jude, and Revelation, with a prologue to the Epistles, an extract from the First Prologue of Revelation, notes on the Seven Seals, a brief history of the world corresponding to the Seven Seals (13th century), and the order of ceremonies in Holy Week (14th century). The Scripture text includes the ordinary gloss and generally agrees with the Clementine and Sistine Vulgate, with scribal errors, and approaches to the Western text (Irish, Gallican, Orleans, and Alcuin texts). Several inscriptions by previous owners. Physical description: Ms. on thick vellum, 89 folio leaves; 6 in. x 8 7/8 in.; initials in red; glossed with interlinear notes; signatures and catchwords. Text is complete, but the foliation is incorrect. (Collation provided in first image.)
