Rare Book Department
Beginning of Ecclesiasticus
These leaves seem to form a group because of the consistency of the leaf and text measurements and the ruling pattern; leaves are paginated with pencil numbers in the upper left-hand corner of each side of each leaf.
This leaf is from a set of thirty-one leaves that were cut from a single manuscript that once comprised a complete Bible.
This page begins the Book of Ecclesiasticus, which was believed to have been written by Jesus of Sirach. In the historiated initial O which begins the book, he is shown speaking to God.
