More than 1000 men and women who were members of the Benedictine order and are venerated as saints are listed in this manuscript catalogue compiled by the Michels­berg abbot Andreas Lang (r. 1483-1502). Like Lang’s catalogue of abbots, the text was copied by his secre­tary Nonnosus Stettfelder (d. 1529).

(fol. 99v-100r)
