Manuscript TitleFlavius Josephus: Antiquitates Iudaicae (fragment)
CaptionParchment · 1 f. · 17 x 27 cm · Switzerland: Engelberg · around 1200
Manuscript SummarySingle leaf with a splendid initial from a richly illustrated manuscript of Flavius Josephus’ Antiquitates Iudaicae from the monastery of Engelberg; around 1600 it was sold by Abbot Andreas Hersch or Abbot Melchior Kitz to the Zurich bookseller and bookbinder Johann Felix Haller (active 1603-1637) and was then used by him as manuscript waste for a historical work by Hans Felix Grob the Younger (1572-1653). It is unclear when this volume reached the City Library of Bern and when it was assigned the shelf mark Mss.h.h.XXIa.25; the binding manuscript waste was removed by Johann Lindt in 1941.
