Origin

Original Location: Säbäya Māryām /SM

1800 - 1900

19th cent. (?)

Contents


Incipit ():

Explicit ():



- Quire A comprises of re-utilized leaves (originally from a different Ms?) which contain the beginning of Zǝmmāre written in the main hand. The fols. are misplaced; the proper order is as follows: 3v, 3r, 2v, 2r, 1v, 1r. In 3v, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 15th, 17th, 25th and 26th line of the incipit is rubricated.

- A blank column on 72vb. It is possible that between the end of the text on 72va and the beginning of the text on 73ra (i.e., in the blank space) a text is missing since in the printed edition there is a short eight-line passage in the same place. It could be, however, that the scribe omitted it on purpose since it contains a list of common prayers.
