The Bible in Latin, with st. Jerome's prefaces, in the usual Vulgate order, written at the close of the 13th cent. in France
N. T. begins at fol. 320. At fol. 406 are the 'Interpretationes Hebraicorum nominum secundum Remigium': followed by some 15th cent. notes on parts of the Bible.
Fol. 1 is a Dominican Veronese calendar, which is certainly part of the MS., and not foisted in, though perhaps copied in a little later: it bears the 16th cent. inscription 'Celestinorum de Medunta [Mantes], signatus 667', the first three words erased. On fol. 319 are the Eusebian Canons.
