A Benedictine Diurnal 'secundum consuetudinem monachorum de obseruantia sancte Iustine ordinis sancti Benedicti', containing:
  1. A Calendar (fol. 6: Jan.-Feb., July-Oct. lost)
  2. List of Antiphons (fol. 9)
  3. Proprium de Tempore (fol. 13)
  4. Psalter (fol. 93)
  5. Hymnal (fol. 198v)

Soon after the book was written the Calendar was altered to suit the Benedictine monastery of St. Peter at Perugia (fol. 18v, 'Istud diurnum est monachorum congregationis sancte Iustine ordinis sancti Benedicti de obseruantia ... sancti Petri de Perusio ...'). The fly-leaves contain in two pieces most of a leaf of a 12th cent. Latin historical piece.
