A collection of Lives of Saints (all but one commemorated in February or March) arranged in the order of the calendar with slight disturbances.
Physical description: ^
Vellum. 122 foil. 295 x 225 mm. 22 lines. Written in Caroline minuscule.
Obviously written for some Benedictine house1, but, considering the absence of the Aduentus ss. martyrum Cornelii et Cypriani (March 15) hardly for Saint- Corneille, Compiègne, whence the MS was transferred to the Bibliothèque Nationale in 18022. The fact that the collection includes a Life of St Vodoald (Vodoalus) would make one think rather of the diocese of Soissons. [Quote from Bieler's Introduction, p. 8.]
