Beginning of Judges
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 Judges, which in its first chapters tells how God chose Judah to lead the Israelites against the Canaanites and Perizzites and how they were defeated. The historiated initial P on this page represents Judah being appointed leader of Israel.
