These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first response of the first nocturn for Matins of the second Sunday in Lent, "Tolle arma tua pharatram et arcum" (Take your weapons, quiver and bow).
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.
