13th-century copy of Haimo's 9th-century commentary on the Song of Solomon, with an unusual layout presenting the biblical lemmata in the margins enclosed in decorated circles and triangles. The commentary is allegorical, interpreting the Song of Songs as describing the marriage of Christ and the Church. Chapter divisions are added in the margins in a later medieval hand. This text is also known as the Commentarius in cantica canticorum or Expositio in cantica canticorum and has been attributed to Haimo of Halberstadt, Remigius Altissiodorensis, Cassiodorus, and Thomas Aquinas. The commentary is followed by an unidentified introduction to the Song of Songs.
