  • How to
    request
A Breviary 'secundum consuetudinem Romane Curie', for Franciscan use, consisting of:
  1. A Calendar (fol. 1)
  2. Psalter etc. (fol. 7)
  3. Proprium de Tempore (fol. 82)
  4. Proprium Sanctorum (fol. 277)
  5. Commune Sanctorum (fol. 424)
  6. And smaller offices (fol. 444v)
The Calendar points in some respects to Verona (Stt. Saturninus, Apr. 7: Zeno, Apr. 12, May 21: Annon, May 23, etc.): but the occurrence of 'Sancti Stephani Cavaciani episcopi' in red on Oct. 29 connects the book still more closely with Cajazzo, near Naples. At end 'Hic berbiarius est scriptus, Qui scripsit sit benedictus. Scriptor sum talis, Monstrat mea lictera [qualis].'
