Dot Porter, Curator, Digital Research Services at the University of Pennsylvania Library, offers a video orientation to Penn Library’s Ms. Codex 236, a Latin vulgate Bible from the Catholic Church. This manuscript was written in France in the early 13th century, in Latin, and it is a Vulgate Bible with prologues by Jerome and illuminations.

The biblical text is followed by a calendar of the Church year (f. 400v-401v), a missal (f. 402v-420v), including the ordinary from the canon through the communion and propers for Sundays and feasts throughout the year, and a breviary (f. 421r-458v), with nine lessons for major feasts, so not for a monastic context. The manuscript also includes a table of Epistle and Gospel incipits (f. 460r-462v), which is a later addition..
