Folio Number: front 65:70
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Initial P
Notes: These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
Notes: This initial begins the first response of the first lesson of the first nocturn of Matins for the third Sunday in September, "Peto domine ut de vinculo improperii huius absolvas me aut certe desuper terram eripias me" (I ask you Lord, in order that you absolve me from the fetter of this burden or else take me away from the earth).

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.
