Porrentruy, Bibliothèque cantonale jurassienne, Ms. 22, f. e011

Manuscript title: Breviarium basileense

 

Manuscript summary: This breviary was meant for use in the diocese of Basel. There are still partially visible traces of coats of arms that were painted on ff. 33r, 41r, 129r and 279r and were later erased; these allow the codex to be attributed to Arnold of Rotberg, Bishop of Basel from 1451 to 1458. His successor, Jean de Venningen (1458-1478) noted on f. 5r the repurchase of the manuscript from Porrentruy Castle on June 29th 1461.

 

Origin: Porrentruy, Switzerland
