Summary

This manuscript is a partial leaf from a twelfth-century liturgical manuscript, probably written in Italy. The text on this leaf is from Reginold von Eichstätt's Historia of Saint Nicholas, a series of antiphons and responsories designed to be sung in the canonical Office on the feast of Saint Nicholas. Shortly after the composition of the Historia in the second half of the tenth century, lections were added, which were included in the source manuscript of this fragment. The responses, versicles, and antiphons are marked with neumes for chanting. This fragment was used in a binding.
