Franciscan Breviary, Fragment

Public

Two in situ fragments used as wrappers of a sixteenth-century book (Marc-Antoine Muret, Orationes, Venice, 1576). Both fragments are from the same breviary (and likely the same quire). One covers the back of book and is trimmed off around the sewing supports; the other covers the front of book and is similarly cut around the sewing supports, from. One fragment covers Holy Saturday (the Saturday before Easter), the other Dominica in Albis (the Sunday after Easter). The prayer sequences for each (particularly those for Dominica in Albis) follow Franciscian use. Host Volume: Orationes : XXIII earum index statim post praesationem continetur : eiusdem interpretatio quincti libri Ethicorum Aristotelis ad Nicomachum : eiusdem hymni sacri & alia quaedam poematia Description produced by Emma Robertson as part of the course "In the Archives" taught by Prof. Adrienne Williams Boyarin, University of Victoria, 2021.

  • Victoria, University of Victoria Libraries, binding fragmentsCall no. PQ1647 M87 07 1576 (in situ)Franciscan Breviary, 2 cut leavesItaly s. XIVThis transcription provides a reconstruction of the partial leaves, used as binding waste in a sixteenth-century book (Muret, Orationes, Venice, 1576). Missing text is supplied to fill an estimated 30 lines per column. Some text on both fragments can be found in the spine, and this has been identified in the boldface headings below, reference to supplied images. “Fragment 1” is the inner cover of the back of the book; “Fragment 2” is the inner cover of the front of the book. Both fragments are from the same manuscript but are not consecutive: Fragment 1 collates with Holy Saturday, and Fragment 2 with Dominica in Albis (i.e., the first Sunday after Easter).For reconstruction of missing text, the fragments were collated not only with modern breviaries (cf. Breviarium Romanum, vol. 2, Kempten: J. Kösel, 1849, pp. 299–332) but also with Assisi, Biblioteca comunale, MS 694 (ff. 135v–137r and 149v–150r). Victoria, University of Victoria Libraries, MS Lat.7, a late thirteenth-century Franciscan Choir Breviary, shows identical sequences (f. 92rff).Reconstructed transcription by Emma Robertson (April 2021) as part of coursework for a manuscript studies class with Dr. Adrienne Williams Boyarin (University of Victoria)FRAGMENT 1[recto, col. a][[Habitabit i(n) ta]]b[[nacu]]lo [[tuo]] requi-[[e]]sce[[t]] i(n) mon[[te]] s(an)c(t)o [[tuo]]. p(salmu)s D[[(omi)n]]e[[q]]uis [[**]] an(tiphona) Caro mea requie-[[sc]]et in spe. p(salmu)s Conserua me.[[V(ersiculus)]] In pace i(n) idip(su)m.
