'...Breuiarium secundum ritum sacrosancte Romane ecclesie', consisting of:
  1. A Calendar (fol. 1)
  2. Psalter, etc. (fol. 10)
  3. Proprium de Tempore, with benedictions (fol. 80)
  4. Proprium ('festiuitates') Sanctorum (fol. 327)
  5. 'Commune Sanctorum' (fol. 487) with smaller offices, including that of the Virgin (fol. 512)
  6. 'In agenda Mortuorum' (fol. 518)
The Calendar is of Ravenna. Much of the volume is palimpsest, written over at least two erased MSS. (1) of the 13th cent., perhaps a Canon Law treatise, (2) of the 12th cent., a theological work. Words from the first are' notificauerat quod eam uolebat... conferre aut interdixerat ne conferret ... seu illam sue reseruauerat collationi' (fol. 21): and from the second 'uerba legis. complicantes ea et ligantes infronte. et quasi coronam capit ...' (fol. 261), 'uerbum non de secularibus sed de regno Dei' (fol. 319).
