Sequentiar. Fragment. Latin handwritten on parchment. Gothic minuscule brown and red and red tint. Upper half of leaf. 2 columns. 175 x 234mm with 2 large 2/4 line initials 'S' and 'L' in red, 3 red headlines and 25 red painted initials. France, probably first half of 12 century. Fragment of a Latin Sequentials from the 12th century. Visible are parts of the rhymes and sequences to the festivals (recto:) De decollationes Johannis baptiste (29 Aug) [De na] tivitate Marie [8 Sept] and (9 verso) In exaltationes crucis (14 Sept) of the liturgical De-sanctis part. The beginning and end of the famous cross sequence Laudes crucis attollamus / nos qui crucis exultamus / speciali gloria are clearly legible. Adam of s. Victor (died 1146?) is attributed. The joints of the former binding are evident with corresponding wrinkles, nail holes and incisions, otherwise only occasional edge stains, some heavily stained and shabby. Some worn text beyond recognition or complete loss. Rare High Medieval handwriting sheet.
