Collection of 10th- through early 13th-century texts that formed the standard 13th-century medical curriculum (referred to and printed in the Renaissance under the collective title Articella), here copied in the mid-13th century with inhabited initials showing medical scenes. 5 works of Isaac Israeli concerning diet, urine, fevers, and the elements, which were translated into Latin in the 11th century by Constantine the African, a Benedictine monk, comprise most of the manuscript. These are preceded by a brief introduction to Galen and 2 short works on the pulse, the later of which, by Gilles de Corbeil, is the latest work in the collection. Most of the illuminations depict Dominican monks teaching and tending to patients.
