Summary

This manuscript is a copy of the Compendium historiae in genealogia Christi by Peter of Poitiers, written in 1334 on a parchment roll of four membranes, over nine feet in length, probably in Paris. In addition to the date, the name of the scribe, Petrus de Bugino, appears in the colophon in the bottom right corner of the fourth membrane. The original owner's name has been erased from the colophon and replaced with the name of a later owner. The roll begins with a diagram of a candelabrum and a prologue about the diagram. A genealogical diagram extends vertically through the roll, from Adam and Eve to Jesus Christ, with the names written in rondels. Additional diagrams or diagrammatic illustrations occasionally appear in the text on either side of the genealogical diagram. The dorse or verso of the roll is blank.
