Custodial History

The calendar points unmistakably to the neighbourhood of Aquileia (Hilarius, Mar. 16: Cantus, Mar. 31: Hermagoras, July 12), but is in some respects like those referred to at MS. Canon. Liturg. 297 (Cunigunda, Willibrord, etc.). Liberalis of Treviso is added, Apr. 27, and on Aug. 19 is 'Hac die gloriosus princeps Ottakarus Bohemie rex in conflictu Rudolphi Romanorum regis occiditur Mocclxxix. Vocatus martyr (in the original hand on Mar. 5) seems to be unknown to hagiographers. The tables of years run from 1216 to 1324.
