These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first response of the first nocturn of Matins for Holy Saturday, "Sicut ovis ad occisionem ductus est et dum male tractaretur non aperuit os suum" (Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter and though he was harshly treated, he opened not his mouth).
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.
