Manuscript Summary:
Manuscript Summary
This manuscript contains the Chronicle of the Popes by Martin of Opava († after 1278) on pp. 3-95. The chronicle goes as far as Boniface VIII; the names of the five following popes are added at the end by a later hand. This is followed by sermons for saints’ days (pp. 96-206), and then, on pp. 207-224, excerpts from Martin of Opava’s Chronicle of the Emperors, with an anonymous continuation up to Henry IX [VII] (1313). A 14th century fragment of an ascetic tract is bound into the front (pp. 1a-2b). The book decoration is limited to simple pen-flourish initials (pp. 105, 107, 184). (sno)
