St Catharine's College : Bible

St Catharine's College

<p style='text-align: justify;'>An English thirteenth-century bible in the typical style, with extensive marginalia throughout in hands ranging from the thirteenth through fifteenth centuries. The codex has two noteworthy characteristics: first, the Vulgate text of the Old Testament contains not only the usual books of Ezra and Nehemiah, but also the less common apocryphal 4 Esdras (also known as Esdras 2/4 and 5). Secondly, the copy of the Interpretationes nominum hebraicorum following the Vulgate text appears to have been incomplete, and was finished at some later date (possibly in the 15<sup>th</sup> century) by a scribe who is scrupulously attempting to imitate the thirteenth-century hand of the original text. </p>
