Fine manuscript with Uncial titles. One decorated initial.
This leaf is a fragment from the 13th-century Anglo-Norman poem, La Lumiere as Lais, by Peter of Peckham. The fragment is chapter 7-11 of the seventh distinction of Book II of the poem, which deals with the subject of sin. It is possibly from France or England.
Resembles the hand in another fragment of the same poem, in the Bodleian Library.
Lower half of a page from an Antiphoner from Southern England, with very fine illumination. Probably of the Sarum Use, it contains part of Lauds, Sext (iii is an error for vi), None, and Second Evensong of the Common of Apostles. The page is held together vertically,with 2 sides mounted to a long strip of paper attached to the verso side.
Collectar (contains the prayers - collects - for the canonical hours of the Office), apparently following the Use of Sarum. It contains part of the Sanctorale from the Collect of Lady Day (25th March) to the Chapter at 1st Vesper of SS. Philip and James (1 May), including the Proper of SS. Richard, Ambrose, Tyburcius and Companions, Alphege, George, Mark and Vitalis.
A fragment (top right-hand corner?) from a leaf of a Grail, apparently of Sarum Use. Contains parts of two Grails and three Alleluias with their Verses, from the Common of Many Martyrs, as in the standard Sarum Use.
Sarum Grail, containing part of the Temporale from near the beginning of the Sequence Dic nobis quibus of Thursday after Easter, to Alleluia of Saturday after Easter (including the greater part of the Sequence Victime paschali). Later hand annotations on the upper margin of f. 1r. Folio 2 is incomplete. A slip in the folder says: 'Primitive mensural notation in the sequence (The Longa has the double value of the Brevis but this usage is not consistent)'.
Lectionary, probably following the Use of Sarum. Contains parts of the 4th, 5th, and 6th lessons from a sermon of S. Maximus, appointed in the Sarum Breviary for the 6th day after Christmas when a Sunday, and part of the first lesson for S. Silvester.
A leaf from a moral treatise on the Decalogue, also known as the Ten Commandments. The Decalogue was a fundamental element for students studying the Bible in medieval universities, so there are many commentaries and texts on it. This is a leaf from one, indicated by a marginal note in the same hand as the main text, De diff. preceptorum deca-logi.
Well written, with filigree initials.
