Text 1: ff. 1-287
Title: Missale estivalis quem comparavit Johannes laicus de rastorf quondam mrg’ coq’ne felicis memorie qui obit in vigilia s. margarethe ac cuius anniversarium datur dominis xxx solidi annuatim ad caritatem. Summer Missale
Language(s): Latin
Notes: Rubric is contemporary inscription in red ink on fol. 1r, "a summer Missal, which the layman Johann von Rasdorf acquired, late [ . . . ] of happy memory, who died on the eve of Saint Margaret and on whose anniversary each year 30 shillings are given by the clergy to charity". The abbreviated words “mrg’ coq’ne” are perhaps “magister coquine”, ‘master of the kitchen’, head cook. The book comprises: anniversaries of deaths 1284-1373 (fol. 2r), a Calendar (fol. 3r); prayers and sequences (fol. 9r); the Temporal, from Easter Eve (fol. 13r) to the twenty-fifth Sunday after Pentecost; the dedication of a church (fol. 99r); prefaces (fol. 102r); the Canon of the Mass (fol. 106r); and the Sanctoral, from the Annunciation (fol. 110r, 25 March) to Saint Katherine (25 November); the Common of Saints (fol. 222r); followed by special Masses, for Saints Peter and Paul as patron saints (fol. 246v), votive Masses (fol. 254r), Masses for the Dead (fol. 268v), and others. According to the fourteenth- to fifteenth-century note inside the upper cover, this Missal was kept in the chapel of Corpus Christi.
