These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first response of the first nocturn of Matins for the first Sunday in October, "Adaperiat Dominus corvestrum in lege sua et in preceptis suis et faciat pacem in diebus nostris" (May the Lord open your heart to his law and his commandments and send you peace in your lifetime).
Lewis E M 65:1-78 were once thought to have come from a single manuscript associated with the Cistercian monastery at Zwettl in Austria. It has been determined, however, that the leaves are from a number of separate manuscripts and were likely produced by a team of scribes and artists at the scriptorium of the Benedictine monastery at Melk.
