MS. Canon. Liturg. 155
Held at the Weston Library

  • Request

A Psalter, with Canticles, etc., perhaps Franciscan, written in Italy: preceded by a Calendar (fol. 1), and followed by:

  1. 'Hymnarium per anni totius circulum' (fol. 87)
  2. 'Letanie' (fol. 102)

In the Calendar on Apr. 4 is 'Indulgentia ecclesie sancte Marie Caritatis' as a festum duplex majus, which points to the monastery of that name at Venice. The Calendar may be called Augustinian, but the Hymnal is Franciscan.
