The special significance of the Würzburg Lectionary (Comes Romanus Wirziburgensis) for an understanding of the history and the development of the Roman Lectionary has long been recognized. Ever since Dom Morin published the Epistle and Gospel lections of this Lectionary early in this century considerable scholarly investigation has been devoted to it. Comes Romanus Wirziburgensis now at the Library of the University of Würzburg, bears the catalogue number Mp th f 62. It is composed of sixteen leaves written in a minuscule hand. The place and date of writing are still the subject of disagreement. Three divisions can be recognized in the contents of this manuscript. The first is a calendar of the Roman church year with Roman stations. It occupies leaves 1r to 2v. The text on both sides of leaf 1 is divided into two columns; three columns on 2r, and one column on 2v. All 213 items are numbered. No liturgical text is given, simply the day is indicated. Beginning with Christmas, the calendar follows the course of the church year in a manner similar to the sacramentaries and lectionaries of the eighth and ninth centuries. The second section is the Epistle lections from 10v to 16v, which break off with the Vigil of St. Andrew.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
