Manuscript Summary
This paper manuscript contains Guilelmus Britonis’ Vocabularius biblicus, a text composed between 1250 and 1270. It contains around 2,500 entries for words from the Bible (inc., p. 1a: Difficiles studeo partes quas biblia gestas…). The words are arranged strictly according to alphabetical order. Exception for the A written in red ink (p. 1), the initials of the lemmata are not executed, although their indications in the manner of running titles should have helped readers to find their way around. The text is widely diffused, being preserved in at least 130 copies (Summa Britonis sive Guillelmi Britonis Expositiones Vocabulorum Biblie, ed. L. Daly & B. Daly, Padova 1975). The current volume, dating from the fourteenth century, entered the possession of the priest Heinrich Lütenrieter in 1402, as the upper inside cover: Anno etc. m. cccc° 2°. Ego Hainricus Lütenrieter presbyter emi hunc librum lib. Gallen. [?] a domino Nicolao Mündli. The seal of the library of Abbot Diethelm Blarer (p. 267b) attests that this manuscript belonged to the Abbey of St. Gall by 1553-1564 at the latest. (rou)
