Tintern Abbey Bible

National Library of Wales

Type: Document

Date: c. 1240

A typical thirteenth-century Bible although it lacks the Prayer of Manasses and includes the Prayer of Solomon after Ecclesiasticus. Compared with the usual set of prologues there are many omissions and divergencies. Written by two scribes. Fine decorated initials and substantial glossing by 13th-century hands.
