Video Orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's LJS418 - Passio sancti Blasii.

Summary: An account of the martyrdom of Saint Blaise, bishop of Sebaste in Armenia, followed by readings and chants for a Mass of Saint Blaise. Additional texts, probably in different hands, at the end of the manuscript are mostly for baptisms, but also include one group of prayers for vestments and two rough sketches of Guidonian hands. A 17th-century (?) inscription on the last leaf, which probably served as the cover for this gathering folded in half, reads Historia et orationes pro Sancto Blasio (f. 8v).
