Notes: This Bible is a typical example of Bibles produced in the thirteenth century. The small, two-column format and small script as well as the use of thinner parchment made it possible to create portable Bibles. Prior to this point, the books of the Bible were more often grouped together and produced separately in large volumes. For example, the Gospels or the books of the Pentateuch would be copied as individual manuscripts. This format continues to be used to this day in modern editions of the Bible.
