PHILIPPIANS 1:1-4:14. Title. “Hymn to Christ”. (Eng. trans. 2:5-11 and 4:4-7). Handwritten and illuminated in Bologna, Italy, c. 1275, on finest thin white vellum. Full headings. Rubricated throughout. Very Large, stunning 30-line Capital “P”; with 4 smaller Initials in RED and BLUE. 6.25″ x 4.25″. FINE- condition; some ink fading to recto which affects the price considerably–see pics. With the possible exception of John 1, more has been written about the “Christ-hymn” in 2:5-11 than any other text in the NT. Truly one of the finest manuscript leaves available anywhere!
