Manuscript Summary:
Manuscript Summary
Biblical books: Tobias (pp. 273), Judith (pp. 74164), Esther (pp. 165247), Canticum Canticorum (pp. 248261), written by several hands that show an insular influence in parts. On pp. 264318 there is a biblical glossary that is defective in the beginning; it is ordered according to the books of the Bible (Genesis to Sirach). Among the explanations of words, which are predominately in Latin, there are also 178 Old High German glosses. Several pages (pp. 101104) are missing pieces at the edges, which have been pasted over with older fragments in Merovingian cursive („a-b type“ from Corbie), which belong to Cod. Sang. 214. (sno)
