Manuscript Summary:
Manuscript Summary
‘Venerable’ is the term that comes to mind for describing this manuscript. In fact, it can be considered ‘venerable’ due to its age since it is dated circa 825. Furthermore, the author of the main texts copied herein is Beda Venerabilis or the Venerable Bede (672/674, † 735), who was a monk at Jarrow Abbey in England. Copied in the Benedictine Abbey of Massay (France, Cher, near Bourges), the manuscript contains several of the Venerable Bede’s scientific works such as the Easter cycle, also known as Bede’s cycle, the De natura rerum, the De temporibus and the De temporum ratione. Various other texts were also inserted: the Annales Petaviani and the annals of the Abbey of Massay, calendar, fragments on the computus, letters. (jeg)
