Case MS 200

Gift of Roger S. Baskes

These two manuscript fragments were written in northern Europe (perhaps Switzerland) in the second half of the 10th century. When acquired they formed the outer binding of a 17th century edition of a Jesuit commentary on Exodus, printed in Antwerp and subsequently bound in Berne. Conservation work at the Newberry revealed their highly legible patristic content (visible here), which varies significantly from the standard edition of Augustine's works.
