This incredible manuscript adds to the impressive artistic and literary tradition of the Beatos. It consists of 194 pages, and contains 65 miniatures, for the most part inserted into the text and without frame. It goves the impression that the text and the images were made at the same time with the first forced to model itslef to the second. 

The manuscript was copied approximatley in the XIth century in the italian region of Benevento, of which reflects the writing, disposed in two columns. The presence, throughout the text of the minuscule carolina suggests that a monk from the north of Italy, probably assisted with the compilation of the manuscript.
