Western Medieval Manuscripts : Biblical commentary

Western Medieval Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript, completed in 1652, contains <i>Biblical commentary</i>, theological notes on a variety of verses from different books of the Old and New Testaments. The cited texts are written in the original Greek or Hebrew, while some of the commentary passages are in Greek and others in Latin. Peculiarly, after filling the first 41 folios of the manuscript, the writer began writing from the opposite end of what was presumably a bound note book, eventually filling it and meeting the end of the text written previously (<a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(92);return false;'>f. 41v</a>), and adding a colophon remarking on this convergence. The meeting of these two sequences of text on a single page, as well with the consistent placement of the watermarks, indicates that this peculiar arrangement was not the result of quires being bound erroneously.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>A note on <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(10);return false;'>f. [iv] verso</a> suggests that the text may be the work of Adam Littleton</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Christopher Wright</p>
