Manuscript Summary
This copy of excerpts from books 3 to 6 of the Vitas Patrum (Palladius Helenopolitanus, Evagrius Ponticus, among others) is listed in the Allerheiligen Abbey register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v); it is written in a single column and is executed by several rather unpracticed hands on rough parchment with holes and patched areas. Except for two initials with scroll ornamentation in red with pale blue and green inner grounds (f. 3r), the manuscript is undecorated. The discoloration on f. 1r and f. 148v suggests that the manuscript remained unbound until the second half of the 15th century, when it received a yellowish leather binding with decorative lines. Documents from 1414 and 1413 were used as front and back pastedowns, respectively; the watermark of the flyleaves (f. I, 149) can be dated to 1455. (spe)
