Collection of instructions for bishops. Work 1 is possibly an older variation of the episcopal benedictions found in Fasc. IV of the Roman Pontifical as published by Leo XIII. Includes De patenae et calicis consecratione; De benedictione mapparum, seu linteaminum sacris altaris; De benedictione corporalium; and De benedictione sacrorum vasorum, et aliorum ornamentorum in genere. Work 2 is a portion of the Ordo Romanus, likely copied from a printed edition. Original work was compiled around 730 in France, as an instruction book for clergymen on the performance of various religious ceremonies. Work 3 is a collection of prayers for certain occassions, or concerning certain religious figures, which includes In die natalium domini; De sancto Johanne evangelista; In ascensione domini; In die Penthecosten; In die corpus Xristi; and De sancta Trinitate; as well as daily prayers, prayers to the Virgin Mary, to John the Baptist, to Peter and Paul, concerning the annunciation of Mary, to St. Martin, and for dinner. Although the entire manuscript is French in origin, and the Ordo Romanus seems to have its origins in the practices of French bishops, work 3 specifically references the Gallic rite, "In gallicantu benedictio" (f. 21r).
