[Bible Leaf with Text from 1st Maccabee, 13th Century]

Description: A leaf from a Bible in Latin (France or England, ca. 1230-1260) containing text from 1 Maccabees 1 et seq. ("Et factum est postquam percussit Alexander Philippi Macedo"). Text displayed as 2 columns, gothic script (texualis formata). A notable feature of this particular leaf is that the writing begins "below top line" which suggest the MS was written "below top line" which suggests the MS was written after 1230 (see: N.R. Ker, "From 'Above Top Line; to 'Below Top Line': A Change in Scribal Practice," Celtica, 5 [1960], 13-16). Note also that the chapter numbers were added later (standardization was begun in Paris ca. 1230).
