Video Orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's Ms. Codex 1065, a manuscript Bible with most of the prologues typical of a Paris Bible, but with the Interpretationes Hebraicorum nominum following Psalms and with punctuation suggesting English origin. Lacking the first leaf of the New Testament (containing Jerome's prologue to the New Testament and Matthew, before f. 285). Annotated with references to works of Albertus Magnus, the glossa ordinaria, and the Sentences of Peter Lombard, in a number of hands from the 13th through 15th centuries, likely by Dominican owners or readers. Particularly notable because it is lacking a binding, and that fact is the focus of this orientation.
