<p style='text-align: justify;'> This manuscript contains a <i> Miscellany copied by Patrick Young</i>, comprising a series of theological texts, concerning (among other matters) the seven ecumenical councils, the Orthodox faith, the cross, and, in particular, the Iconoclasm, religious movement in Byzantium during the 8th and 9th centuries that rejected the veneration of sacred icons. The volume also contains epistles by Emperor Julian, Libanius and others, and various notes by Young, in particular extracts fron Libanius' Epistles.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Patrick Young (also known as Patricius Junius, 1584-1652), was a Greek scholar, secretary and royal librarian, and published editions of Greek texts and translations from Greek to Latin. He is known for his keen interest in Greek manuscripts and for his habit of copying texts from the libraries he visited. Amasis' letters, present in this manuscript on f. 85r, were copied by Young from <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://medieval.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/catalog/manuscript_1055'> Oxford, Bodleian Library, Barocci 219</a>, as stated by him in a marginal note. Young worked with Augustine Lindsell on an inventory of the Barocci collection for the Bodleian Library. After one of the texts in this manuscript, Patriarch Gennadius II's <i> De Christianorum recta et vera fide</i>, Young wrote a colophon, mentioning the city of London and the date of 5 November 1622 (see Origin): since the manuscript is made all of the same type of paper, it was probably copied all around this same time. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Dr Erika Elia</p>
