Purchased in 1972 from S. Harrison Thomson on the Beinecke Endowment Fund.
Script: Written in Northern Gothica Textualis Libraria in two sizes. The large script used for the text itself is written every two lines. The cursive r-abbreviation could point to England, the z standing on the line and the occasional use of j instead of i reminds us of Spain, the "horn" at the head of r is especially typical of German scribes.
The decoration consists of plain late Romanesque initials in red (2 lines).
Manuscript fragment on parchment of Ps.-Dionysius Areopagita, De caelesti hierarchia, translated into Latin by Robert Grosseteste (d. 1253), with his commentary.
ff. 6 parchment ; 215 x 165 mm.
