Abstract: This image is from a collection created by Etta Hanson and given to the College in 1954. All items are from Otto Ege's estate. The leaf was contained and mounted in a mat created by Otto Ege, as were all other leaves in this collection. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: "The Latin Vulgate version, usually attributed to St.Jerome, is here executed in angular Gothic script, eleven lines to the inch, on the finest vellum. These small portable Bibles were produced in great numbers by the Dominicans (11250-1275) in the early days of the Sorbonne. It has been calculated that in the year 1250, it would have taken the earning of a day laborer for fifteen years to purchase a manuscript Bible of this type."
