Summary

Life of Saint Ursus (or Orso), venerated in Santorso, near Venice in the province of Vicenza. The text was translated from Latin into Italian by Alberto Bischazza, archpriest of Rovigo (f. 1v). Also includes a prayer to Saint Ursus, in different ink in a different, possibly later hand, on the verso of the second flyleaf. Colophon in Latin (f. 14r) contains the notarial statement, without seal of signature, by the notary Ioannes Franciscus de Platea of Vicenza. The lack of a seal or date, added to the evidence of the corrected error of duplication in the explicit, indicates that this is a copy of a notarial copy.
