University of Colorado, Boulder Leaf 01

Described by Ege as early 12th century Swiss, this leaf is from a New Testament with glosses by church fathers including Bede, Jerome, and Gregory. The primary script is Carolingian, with one of the glosses in a minuscule very similar to that in Leaf 04. The gloss hands are different from both one another and from the Biblical text, and the Carolingian gloss hand has decorative brackets setting apart each section. See Denison University Leaf 01 for more information on this manuscript.

Text: John 19:12-19 (verso). A scan of the recto is not currently available. The glosses have not yet been identified.

Erat autem parascéve Paschæ, hora quasi sexta, et dicit Judaeis: Ecce rex vester. Illi autem clamábant: Tolle, tolle, crucifíge eum. Dicit eis Pilátus: Regem vestrum crucifígam?

Et bájulans sibi crucem exívit in eum, qui dícitur Calváriæ locum, hebráice autem Gólgotha: ubi crucifixérunt eum, et cum eo álios duos hinc et hinc, médium autem Jesum. Scripsit autem

[John 19:12-19]

...himself a king, speaketh against Caesar. 13 Now when Pilate had heard these words, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat, in the place that is called Lithostrotos, and in Hebrew Gabbatha. 14 And it was the parasceve of the pasch, about the sixth hour, and he saith to the Jews: Behold your king. 15 But they cried out: Away with him; away with him; crucify him. Pilate saith to them: Shall I crucify your king? The chief priests answered: We have no king but Caesar. 16 Then therefore he delivered him to them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him forth. 17 And bearing his own cross, he went forth to that place which is called Calvary, but in Hebrew Golgotha. 18 Where they crucified him, and with him two others, one on each side, and Jesus in the midst. 19 And Pilate wrote...
