It was copied in Italy in the mid-fifteenth century, and measures 29 x 21.5 cm. The script is an attractive, readable "Rotunda" (round) Gothic, with first letters of verses filled with yellow. The top margin has been trimmed, and some leaves show extensive erasure. See Denison University Leaf 37 for more information about this manuscript.

Azaría, et sóciis ejus in fornácem: et excússit flammam ignis de fornáce, et fecit médium fornácis quasi ventum roris flantem, et non tétigit eos omníno ignis, neque contristávit, nec quidquam moléstiæ íntulit. Tunc hi tres quasi ex uno ore laudábant, et glorificábant, et benedicébant Deum in fornáce, dicéntes. Ad Hebreos. ix.a.
Fratres. Tabernáculum enim factum est primum, in quo erant candelábra, et mensa, et proposítio panum, quæ dícitur Sancta. Post velaméntum autem secúndum, tabernáculum, quod dícitur Sancta sanctórum: áureum habens thuríbulum, et arcam testaménti circumtéctam ex omni parte auro, in qua urna áurea habens manna, et virga Áaron, quæ frondúerat, et tábulæ testaménti, supérque eam erant chérubim glóriæ obumbrántia propitiatórium: de quibus non est modo dicéndum per síngula. His vero ita compósitis, in prióri quidem tabernáculo semper
[Daniel 3:49-51] ...Azarias and his companions into the furnace: and he drove the flame of the fire out of the furnace, 50 And made the midst of the furnace like the blowing of a wind bringing dew, and the fire touched them not at all, nor troubled them, nor did them any harm. 51 Then these three as with one mouth praised, and glorified, and blessed God in the furnace, saying. To Hebrews. 9.a.
Brothers. [Hebrews 9:2-6] The former indeed had also justifications of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. 2 For there was a tabernacle made the first, wherein were the candlesticks, and the table, and the setting forth of loaves, which is called the holy. 3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle, which is called the holy of holies: 4 Having a golden censer, and the ark of the testament covered about on every part with gold, in which was a golden pot that had manna, and the rod of Aaron, that had blossomed, and the tables of the testament. 5 And over it were the cherubims of glory overshadowing the propitiatory: of which it is not needful to speak now particularly. 6 Now these things being thus ordered, into the first tabernacle the priests indeed always entered...

introíbant sacerdótes, sacrificiórum offícia consummántes: in secúndo autem semel in anno solus póntifex non sine sánguine, quem offert pro sua et pópuli ignorántia: hoc significánte Spíritu Sancto, nondum propalátam esse sanctórum viam, adhuc prióre tabernáculo habénte statum: quæ parábola est témporis instántis: juxta quam múnera, et hóstiæ offerúntur, quæ non possunt juxta consciéntiam perféctum fácere serviéntem, solúmmodo in cibis, et in pótibus, et váriis baptismátibus, et justítiis carnis usque ad tempus correctiónis impósitis. Christus autem assístens póntifex futurórum bonórum, per ámplius et perféctius tabernáculum, non manufáctum, id est, non hujus creatiónis: neque per sánguinem hircórum aut vitulórum, sed per próprium sánguinem introívit semel in Sancta, ætérna redemptióne invénta.

[Hebrews 9:6-12] ...accomplishing the offices of sacrifices. 7 But into the second, the high priest alone, once a year: not without blood, which he offereth for his own, and the people's ignorance: 8 The Holy Ghost signifying this, that the way into the holies was not yet made manifest, whilst the former tabernacle was yet standing. 9 Which is a parable of the time present: according to which gifts and sacrifices are offered, which can not, as to the conscience, make him perfect that serveth, only in meats and in drinks, 10 And divers washings, and justices of the flesh laid on them until the time of correction. 11 But Christ, being come an high priest of the good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hand, that is, not of this creation: 12 Neither by the blood of goats, or of calves, but by his own blood, entered once into the holies, having obtained eternal redemption.
