Manuscript Summary
This small codex consists of two parts. The first part (ff. 1-79) is made up of texts by two female scribes (ff. 1r-28r and 28v-79r); it was produced around 1500 or shortly thereafter. According to a colophon on f. 162r, the second part (ff. 80-226) was written by Sister Fides Baierin and, according to a note on f. 80r, belonged later to Sister Barbara Wingelhus. The last three leaves are blank. The booklet reached the Abbey Library in the late 18th century. The first part contains various prayers, especially on the passion; the second part contains prayers in honor of the Virgin Mary. The language of the texts is an Early Modern High German with Swabian influences. (nie)
