Contemporary foliation starting from the first leaf of text (fols. 1–5) and disappearing after fol. 5. Modern foliation in pencil. This foliation has counted fol. 100 twice, and later emended the second one to 100a. A blank leaf after 175, foliated 175a. Leaf following 249 foliated 249a.
A mixed quire structure with a large number of quinio quires.
A small blank slip entered after fols. 25 and 202. A few leaves excised after fol. 31. A leaf excised after fol. 107. Two or three leaves excised after fol. 169. Two leaves excised after fol. 186. A leaf excised after 249a. Fol. 55a is a loose folded slip; fols. 61a, 73a, 284a are loose slips. Fols. 121, 143, 200a are small bound slips. From fol. 294 onwards the leaves are loose.
The paper is severely dirtied, worn and torn in several places.
One column with vertical bounding lines in ink. Varying number of lines.
One main hand belonging to
Johannes Pauli Montigena
who wrote the work in
1556
(for further discussion, see description of the first volume,
C 41a
).
Simple monochromatic initials. Headings, rubrics and biblical
lemmata
marked with a slightly more formal script.
Blind-stamped calf over wooden boards. Tooling features the roll-frames with evangelists, and vines and leaves in the central panel. Two hook-clasps (only one remains) with catches on the front cover. No pastedown remains on the front cover; the paper one on the back cover is mostly loose. A few pieces of leather and paper removed from the binding are preserved in an envelope kept with the manuscript.
Second volume of the
Postille
collection written
1556
by priest
Johannes Pauli Montigena
during his captivity in
Hämeenlinna
castle. Johannes was imprisoned because of his Catholic opinions. He was allowed to write his sermons in captivity and was able to acquire literature for the task. The work is dedicated to
Olaus Magnus
(d. 1557) living as an exile in
Rome
.
In
1573
Johannes Pauli is mentioned to be housed at
Vadstena
.
It seems likely he carried his works with him and they may have ended up in
Uppsala University Library
along with the manuscripts of Vadstena Abbey in
1621
.
