Description

"...dating from the thirteenth century, originating from the Cistercian monastery of Santa Maria de Alcobaça, is written in librarian caroline lettering; the initials have a sober leafy ornamentation; in what concerns decoration, besides that which is described elsewhere, the geometrical figures (Book III) and the diagrammatized representation of the Earth according to the T-O plan (Book XIV) should be mentioned. The codex also contains another work by S. Isidoro, De naturis rerum ad Sisebutum and letters from S. Bráulio to him." - Treasures from Europe's National Libraries
