The calendar points to Germany (St. Cunegunda honoured, added in a contemporary hand, Mar. 3, Sept. 9: canonized in A.D. 1200). In the first half of the 13th cent. the book was transferred to the diocese of Aquileia, probably to the 'monasterium Mosacense', see calendar: the local notes extend from 1302 to 1381 (fols. 1, 4v, 159v, 160). A cycle of years on fol. 12 is from 1344-1409, covering an older series (perhaps 1256-1321).
