Leaf from Book 29, containing text from the middle of Chapter 83 to the beginning of Chapter 86, which consists of excerpts from Saint Bernard of Clairvaux concerning abbots and bishops. The heading in red ink at the top on both sides is Flores Sancti Bernardi. The leaf was written in France, probably Paris, ca. 1400, in a Gothic semi-cursive book script, in 2 columns of 47 lines, and frame-ruled in faint ink with double bounding lines on each side. 3 2-line chapter initials in red or blue with contrasting penwork in blue-black or bright red; chapter headings in red; capitals touched in yellow.
