The manuscript displayed here, written on parchment in 13th-century France, is a complete version of the Vulgate. The semi-Gothic writing is full of flourishes, the opening capital letters are large and ornamented, and it features many delicate calligraphic embellishments in red and blue. The leather binding with gold rings was added at a later date.
