W.32, Hymnal with commentary


This manuscript, created in the twelfth century, contains eighty-one early Christian hymns, accompanied by a commentary supposedly written by St. Hilarius. The margins of the first folios of the manuscript are illuminated with five bishops, likely meant to represent five famous hymn-writers: Hilarius, Ambrose, Prudentius, Sedulius, and Gregory. Due to extreme flaking of the text and pigments, the manuscript could not be digitized at this time.
