Рукопись {2256}
The wider of the two columns contains the Vulgate version of scriptures, translated in the late 4th/early 5th century by St Jerome, and the translation of Desiderius Erasmus (b. c.1466, d. 1536) known as the Novum Instrumentum, first published in 1516 and copied by Meghen from a printed edition.
The Erasmian text seems to have been added after the death of John Colet, the manuscripts' patron, in 1519. The third volume of this set, containing the Gospels of St Matthew and St Mark, is Cambridge, Cambridge University Library, MS Dd.vii.3.
