Manuscript on parchment (thick, poor quality) of excerpts from the writings of Church Fathers, canon law, and conciliar documents. There has been extensive scholarly debate about the manuscript's provenance and its relation to other copies of the Pseudo-Isidore Decretals. The manuscript seems to have been written, corrected, and rubricated by multiple scribes and to have been composed in units; the quality of the parchment often changes from scribe to scribe.
Written in Carolingian minuscule. It seems to have been written, corrected, and rubricated by multiple scribes and to have been composed in units; the quality of the parchment often changes from scribe to scribe.
- See Finding Aid for peculiar codicological features including: the role of multiple scribes and editors, the number and extent of the erasures, the deletion and insertion of leaves, the uneven disposition of the text on many folios, and the two distinct series of quire signatures.
