Fol. 1r-217r: "Declarationes sacrae Congregationis Illustrissimorum Cardinalium super Concilium Tridentinum in eiusdem Concilii decretis" [Sessio 4-Sessio 25 cap. 19] fol. 217v-250v: "Declarationes et decisiones Illustrissimorum et Reverendorum D.D. Patrum Sacri Concilii Tridentini Interpretum Incipientis a 21 Martii 1591 usque ad diem 3 Junii 1601" fol. 251r-261v: "Declarationes Sacrae Congregationis Ilustrissimorum Cardinalium super Concilium Tridentinum in eiusdem Concilii decretis" [continuatio].
The first section of the Declarationes (article 1.a) includes additions authored by Cardinal Antonio Carafa (1538-1591), who was a member of the Sacra Congregatio Cardinalium Concilii Tridentini Interpretum. The manuscript also includes, on fol. 12v-14r, a consilium by the Roman jurist Orazio Mandosio (d. 1594). The scribe has also copied, on fol. 259r, an annotation by Terenzio Alciati (1570-1651), member of the Commission for the revision of the Breviarium romanum. One folio prior to fol. 1, as well as fols. 10, 158, 159, and several others after fol. 261 are torn out.

Script: Two different scripts, presumably by the same hand: the former (fols. 1r-2r) imitates the humanistic script of the earlier part of the sixteenth century; the latter (fols. 2r-261v) is a calligraphic hand of the early seventeenth century. Contemporary corrections, titles and annotations in the margins in the former script. Binding: 14th century vellum (title on front cover in a fourteenth-century hand: "Liber bonorum ..." several lines on back cover written in the same hand).

Faiano;" fol. 176v: "Antonio Faiano son patrone di ques").
