[Manuscript Latin Bible, Leaf 08]

Creation: 1290

Compact one-volume Bibles were a thirteenth-century Parisian specialty, crafted to answer the needs of clerics, monks, and students. Paris was the place to study theology in the Middle Ages. This leaf is from a fine Paris Bible that was used by a succession of readers, some of whom added tiny, precisely written notes that have faded to pale tan but are still visible in the margins. This is a correction by a later owner, who supplied a line the original scribe carelessly skipped over.
