University of Saskatchewan 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 10:13-18 (verso). A scan of the recto is not currently available. Glosses not yet identified.

+ Saskatchewan Leaf 01 Verso Transcription

[Transcription of the main text in the central column:]

mercenárius autem fugit, quia mercenárius est, et non pértinet ad eum de óvibus. Ego sum pastor bonus: et cognósco meas, et cognóscunt me meæ. Sicut novit me Pater, et ego agnósco Patrem: et ánimam meam pono pro óvibus meis. Et álias oves hábeo, quæ non sunt ex hoc ovíli: et illas opórtet me addúcere, et vocem meam áudient, et fiet unum ovíle et unus pastor. Proptérea me díligit Pater: quia ego pono ánimam meam, ut íterum sumam eam. Nemo tollit eam a me: sed ego pono eam a meípso, et potestátem hábeo ponéndi eam, et potestátem hábeo íterum suméndi eam.

[John 10:13-18]

13 And the hireling flieth, because he is a hireling: and he hath no care for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know mine, and mine know me. 15 As the Father knoweth me, and I know the Father: and I lay down my life for my sheep. 16 And other sheep I have, that are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold and one shepherd. 17 Therefore doth the Father love me: because I lay down my life, that I may take it again. 18 No man taketh it away from me: but I lay it down of myself, and I have power to lay it down: and I have power to take it up again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
