Reclamants in the lower margin of the last page of a quire.
Prickings visible; in several quires the prickings for the lines are visible in both inner and outer margins.
One folio excised after 155 but no text is missing. Fols. 1–2 are loose. Fol. 114 is torn in the middle. There is noticeable variety in the quality and size of parchment. There are numerous, usually small, holes and staining.
two pencil-ruled columns; usually 45–50 lines.
Petite gothic textualis by one main hand, writing around
1233–1248
in France, presumably
Paris
. A
tempus ante quem non
is supplied by the fact that Hugo's commentary on the minor prophets stems from 1230s, and a
tempus post quem non
from Bishop Thomas's death in 1248;
Lehtinen 1983, 20
. According to
Lehtinen (1983, 54)
another hand supplied fols. and .
A few slightly younger hands make marginal notes. Some of these are almost completely faded.
A few parted initials in red and blue, along with regular red and blue lombards with flourishing. On fols. 11–20, space and guide-letters are provided, but the second-grade initials have been left unexecuted.
Rubrics, underlining and highlighting in red, but used sparingly.
Uncovered wooden boards. Both boards are loose and almost the entire outer half of the back board is missing. There is no cover at the spine. A piece is also missing from the upper part of the front cover. This and holes stained with rust marks on the opening leaves may indicate that the volume was once chained. Remnants of three clasps are visible on the front board. Sewn on at five sewing stations. Shelf-mark on a paper label pasted to the inside front cover. An older shelf-mark(?) ‘95’ drawn in ink on the inside front cover.
The manuscript features an early copy of
Hugo de Sancto Caro
’s
In historiam scholasticam
and
In XII prophetas
. Since the texts were written in Paris in the 1230s and the manuscript belonged to
Thomas
, bishop of Finland (d. 1248), who donated it to the
Dominicans of Sigtuna
, the manuscript can be dated roughly to
1233–1248
. It was likely produced in
Paris
and principally written by one skilled scribe.
Fol. contains a list of book purchased in
Paris
(before 1248) from a stationer. It is unknown whether the list refers to purchases made by Bishop Thomas or else by an a former owner of the book.
The manuscript came to the Dominican convent in
Sigtuna
from
Thomas
, bishop of Finland (d. 1248). Fol. : ‘Iste est liber ffratrum predicatorum Siktonie, quem contulit eis felicis recordacionis dominus Thomas Episcopus finlandensis. Siquis hunc sine eorum licencia et consensu quocumque modo alienauerit, vel hunc titulum maliciose deleuerit, anathema sit’; Fol. : ‘Liber fratrum predicatorum siktonie quem contulit eis felicis Recordacionis Dominus Thomas episcopus finlandensis’.
The dissolution of the Dominican convent occurred after the Reformation and its books were confiscated. The manuscript may have been given to Uppsala as a part of the donation of King
Gustav Adolf
II in
1621
. Uppsala University Library’s shelf-mark ‘C 134’ on the
inside front cover
. A possible older shelf-mark ‘95’ also on the inside front cover.
