Manuscript Summary:
Manuscript Summary
This composite manuscript is written in a delicate script, probably in the 12th century at the Monastery of St. Gall; its first part (pp. 1-50) contains excerpts from writings by church fathers (Augustine, Gregory the Great, Jerome, etc.) about the church (de catholica ecclesia) and about the sacrament of baptism. This is followed in the second part (pp. 51-88) by a copy of Prognosticum futuri saeculi by Julian of Toledo (around 644-690), which is also preserved in Cod. Sang. 264. This work presents the Christian Church’s first attempt of formulating a comprehensive view of death and of the last things. At the end of the manuscript, which from p. 99 on has bigger and bigger holes in the parchment, there are a number of liturgical texts on rituals, such as on the vestments of bishops, on the Mass or on excommunication.
