This is a variant of the Collectio decem partium, possibly authored by Hildebert of Lavardin, Bishop of Meaux, Archbishop of Tours, or Gautier de Thérouanne, and based on Ivo of Chartres's Panormia. The list of popes originally enumerated on fol. 1v-3v and including the dates of accession and death for each individual starts with Peter and ends with Calixtus II (1119-1124; "Calixte II mort en 1124" in a modern hand in pencil); to this list, seven other names are added, in a slightly different but contemporary hand: Honorius [II, 1124-1130], Innocentius [II, 1130-1143], Celestinus [II, 1143-1144], Lucius [II, 1144-1145], Eugenius [III, 1145-1153], Anastasius [IV, 1153-1154], and Adrianus [IV, 1154-1159]; then "4tus Av. Seculo 12" in a 17th or 18th-century hand, in ink, and the year "1159" are wrtten in pencil in a modern hand; the antipopes Celestinus II (1124), Anacletus II (1130-1138), and Victor IV (1138) are not included. The hand that has foliated the manuscript has also numbered the popes on the list appearing on fol. 1v-3v. The text of the canons of the Third Lateran Council (1179) ends abruptly in the middle of a statement at the beginning of Canon 27.
Ms. codex. Title supplied by cataloger. Collation: Parchment, fol. 170; 1-11⁸ 12⁶⁻¹ 13-21⁸ 22⁶. No catchwords and no early foliation is provided. Modern foliation (17th-18th century?) in brown ink, Arabic numerals, in the upper right corner. The same hand added "Pars 1a," "Pars 2a," and so on, at the top of each folio. Chapter numbers in the margin: those in red ink are apparently contemporary with the copying of the manuscript; those in brown ink could have been inscribed at the time the manuscript was foliated. A few marginal notes. Layout: Fol. 1r-162v, written in 34-35 long lines; fol. 163r-169r: written in 26-31 long lines. Ruled in dry point. Very narrow outer margins. Script: Written in Carolingian minuscule script, by at least five different but contemporary hands. Decoration: Fol. 68v, zoomorphic 8-line red and green initial: a dog is biting the ascender of the letter "B". Fol. 94r, 5-line red and green decorated initial, partly cropped. Fol. 1r, a 3-line red initial penworked in green. Fol. 1v and 4r, 6-line red initial penworked in green. Many 1, 2 and 3-line red and green initials throughout the text. Many initials touched in red. Binding: Parchment over pasteboard. Two thongs used as fastening ties on the boards. Two leaves from a 15th century antiphonary are used as pastedowns, with musical notation on 4 lines. On the boards are still legible, although faded, these words written by a 18th century hand: "Marquise de la Montagne de Phibisima " Origin: Written in France. The text on fol. 163r-169r refers to the Concilium Lateranense III, 1179, so the manuscript was certainly copied after this date.
