<p style='text-align: justify;'> This pocket-sized manuscript is an example of a service book for the Holy Week liturgy for personal use. It contains the mainly the <i>Morning service of Easter Saturday</i>, along with a <i>threnos</i> (lament) of the Virgin, a hymn by George Acropolites (13th century) for Easter Saturday, and an <i>idiomelon</i> (hymn) from the office of Easter Friday. It was used by an unknown priest Stylianos Moulianos, who added some text and his name on <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(177);return false;'>f. 87r</a>. In the mid-18th century, the manuscript was probably used in Italy or by a reader with Italian connections: an account, with a number of Italian names, of an incident that occurred during the Easter of 1743, where many people lost their lives, was added at the end of the manuscript, perhaps by Stylianos Moulianos. Moreover, on the <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(3);return false;'>first folio</a> has been glued the printed image of Jesus carrying the cross, with a title in Latin. The manuscript was donated to Cambridge University Library by M.R. James in 1893.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
