Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts : Menaion for April

Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This fragment, probably copied in the 14th century, is a surviving portion of a <i>Menaion for April</i>, a liturgical book containing the components of services particular to individual days of the year. The majority of the folios have been lost, and those that remain have become soft and fragile. The manuscript retains its original binding, but most of the leather covering material has been lost, while most of what survives has become detached, leaving the wooden boards and textile spine lining exposed. The manuscript is accompanied by a number of small paper fragments, including some originally belonging both to it and to at least three other liturgical manuscripts, two of which are probably of similar date while the other was copied in the late 15th century.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Christopher Wright</p>
