This composite manuscript consists of five parts. The first part (1-93) contains an exemplar of the Benedictine Rule, which was probably brought to Einsiedeln by Saint Meinrad († 861). From the viewpoint of textual-criticism, the text belongs to the group of Textus receptus of the Benedictine Rule, as it is found in northern Italy and in Montecassino in the 8th/9th century; noteworthy are the many interlinear glosses. The other parts of the composite manuscript contain: a Martyrologium (93-108), a Breviarium Apostolorum (98-99), two hymns (100), and a poem composed by Heinrich von Würzburg (109-148).
