Description:
Script: Written in fine Italian minuscule.
Historiated initial containing an imploring figure for Psalm 114, 4-line, on f. 1v, with the hand of God descending from heaven forming the ascender of the uncial d. The fact that Psalm 114 has been signalled by an initial of some ambition is unusual and probably indicates Benedictine usage for the manuscript.
Partly mutilated historiated initial containing a naked (?) figure on f. 2v. Decorative initials, gold on maroon or blue ground, ff. 2r and 2v, with white vine-stem ornamentation. Headings for each Psalm in red; red initial letters for each verse, set to the left of text bounding line.
Parchment trimmed, with loss of one line of text and lower margin.
Removed from a binding.
Abstract:
Manuscript fragment on parchment bifolium of Psalms 113.2-117.1; missing Psalm 113.11.
