Western Medieval Manuscripts : Gospel, Acts and Epistles lectionary

Western Medieval Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This fragment is part of a folio that was probably copied in the second half of the 12th century or first half of the 13th. It appears to come from a New Testament lectionary, quite a rare type of manuscript combining the lections to be read from the Gospels and from the Acts and Epistles into a single alternating sequence, whereas these texts were usually read from two separate books. The lections are accompanied, as part of the manuscript's original content, by information on the hymns to be used, another unusual feature. The format is also unusually small for a lectionary.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Christopher Wright</p>
