2 leaves used as pastedowns from a manuscript of a canon law text, with glosses, written in Germany in the mid-13th century. The leaves were consecutive and contain text and glosses for selected chapters from the Decretals of Gregory IX, taken from Book 3, Titles 31 (De regularibus et transeuntibus ad religionem) and 32 (De conversione coniugatorum), which present regulations about men entering religious orders. The main text is written in 2 columns of 41 lines, ruled in lead. Main text is written in a Gothic script; commentary in marginal glosses is written in a smaller Gothic script. Multiple initials, 2 to 4 lines in height, in red with blue flourishing or blue with red flourishing; 1-line initials generally alternate between blue and red.
