Parchment manuscript pastedowns from a twelfth-century, Bavarian/Austrian(?) missal. Recto of upper pastedown part of ‘Feria V' and ‘Feria VI' ‘post Dominicam II Quadragesimae': begins in the middle of ‘oratio' for ‘Feria V', with incipit: ‘conuenienter int[enti] . . . mentis et corpor[is per]' (P. Bruylants, Les oraisons du missel romain (Louvain, 1952), II 237 no. 837); there follow fragments of the ‘secretum', ‘[P]resenti sacrifici[o] . . . ieiunia dicata s[ ] nostra profitetur ex[trinsecus]' (Bruylants II 236, no. 832), the ‘postcommunio', ‘[G]ratia tua nos quesumus . . . [no]bis opem semper adq[uirat]' (Bruylants II 156, no. 573) and the ‘super populum', ‘[A]desto domine fam[ulis] . . . qui te auctore . . . [glorian]tur et congregat[a] . . . conserues. per' (Bruylants II 15, no. 23). Thereafter are fragments from ‘Feria VI', the ‘oratio', ‘[D]a quesumus o[mnipotens] . . . nos purifi[cante] . . . mentibus ad sancta . . .' (Bruylants II 60, no. 193), the ‘secretum', ‘[H]aec in nobis sa[crificia] . . . permaneant et . . .' (Bruylants II 159-60, no. 583) and the ‘postcommunio', ‘[F]ac nos domine quesumus . . . salutis aeterne . . .' (Bruylants II 150, no. 551). On the verso and, perhaps, on the lower pastedown is a continuation of the text, but not identified precisely.

Initials and paragraph marks are supplied in red. Capital strokes and some underlining in red.
