These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first response of the first nocturn of Matins for the second Sunday after Easter, "Dignus es domine accipere librum et aperire signacula eius" (You are worthy Lord to take the scroll and open its seals).
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.
