Ms. codex.
Title from Zacour-Hirsch Catalogue.
Collation: Parchment, i (modern paper) + 258 + i (modern paper); 1², 2-32⁸; [1-258]; modern foliation in pencil, upper right recto. Earlier foliation (not contemporary with text) in ink begins with 1 at the start of the text (f. 16r), misnumbered and crossed out; ink foliation ends with 242-245 preceding 238-241, which suggests that in an earlier binding the final gathering was arranged differently; in the present binding, the text is continuous through f. 254 (marked 245 in the ink foliation) and f. 255-258 mostly repeats the text of f. 251-254. Numbers and catchwords at the ends of the quires.
Layout: Written in 26 long lines; ruled in lead; prickings visible.
Script: Written in a large, regular Gothic book script by a single hand.
Decoration: Rubricated in red, blue, and green, with decorated initials; large illuminated initial with an amusing grotesque figure, in red, blue, and green (f. 204v); illustrated with a biblical canon in columns decorated with borders and ornaments in red and blue (f. 56v-57r); incomplete diagram of affinity (f. 226r).
Binding: Modern quarter vellum over wooden boards; vellum split at front hinge, upper cover and spine nearly detached.
Origin: Written in France, 12th century (Zacour-Hirsch).
Incipit, text: Incipiunt decreta sanctorum pontificum. De fide sanctae trinitatis. Credimus unum deum esse patrem & filium & sanctumque spiritum (f. 16r).
Incipit prologus super exceptiones decretorum sanctorum pontificum. Exceptiones ecclesiasticarum regularum partim ex epistolis romanorum pontificum... (f. 3r).
The text is not entirely complete, ending after what is marked as Chapter CXXXVI in Patrologia latina.
