Bible (Jn, Mk) with Glossa ordinaria

This volume consists of three codices that were bound together. The first two (pp. 184 and 85228) contain the Gospel of John, the third (pp. 229342) the Gospel of Mark, each with the so-called Prologus monarchianus (Stegmüller, Repertorium Biblicum, No. 624: pp. 12 and 8688; Stegmüller, RB 607: pp. 229232) and Glossa ordinaria. In the first codex, the Gospel text abruptly ends in the middle of a sentence on p. 84 in Jn 21,2; only Jn 1,1–8,24 are glossed. In the second codex, Jn 1,1–20,25 is glossed. While the first and third codices are from the 12th century, the second is somewhat later (12th/13th century). The last pages of the third codex also are later (13th century: glosses from p. 315, main text from p. 319). There is a zoomorphic initial (dragon) on p. 3 and an initial in minium on p. 229. Fragments of 10th century manuscripts were used to line the back. On the inside of the front cover, there is an imprint of a manuscript fragment, and on the back pastedown there is a late medieval note of ownership for St. Gall Abbey. (sno)

Copy of the Pauline Epistles with the Glossa ordinaria: Epistle to the Romans (pp. 344), First Epistle to the Corinthians (pp. 4478), Second Epistle to the Corinthians (pp. 78106), Epistle to the Galatians (pp. 106121), Epistle to the Ephesians (pp. 121136), Epistle to the Philippians (pp. 136146), Epistle to the Colossians (pp. 146156), First Epistle to the Thessalonians (pp. 156164), Second Epistle to Timothy (pp. 165172), Epistle to Titus (pp. 172177), Epistle to Philemon (pp. 177179), Epistle to the Hebrews (pp. 179214). The Second Epistle to the Thessalonians and the First Epistle to Timothy are missing (loss of a quire).The beginning of the Epistle to the Romans (Rm 1, 1–20) appears on pp. 1-2 already, also with the Glossa ordinaria. The decoration consists of initials with scroll ornamentation in the same ink as the text on pp. 3, 44, 106, 146, 172, 177 and 179. On the last leaf (p. 215-216), presumably formerly a pastedown, there is the sequence De sancto Nicolao by Adam of Saint Victor with diastematic neume notation on staff lines incised with a stylus. This notation, not customary in St. Gall, argues against the manuscript’s having been produced at the St. Gall monastery. (sno)
