Latin ms. on parchment. Binding: ca. 10th c. Half bound in mottled brown goatskin, gold-tooled, with a red label. Marbled paper sides.
Written in Germany at the end of the 13th or beginning of the 14th century, perhaps at the Cistercian monastery of Kempen near Duesseldorf to which it belonged in the 15th century. Manuscript on parchment (leaves are very uneven due to irregular trimming) originally composed of roughly executed full-page illustrations and diagrams that constitute the Speculum theologie.
