Notes:-The 'Martinellus' is a colllection of texts concerned with the legendary life, miracles and cult of Saint Martin of Tours (d.397). In his library catalogue c. 1500, Menger wrote Item legenda sancti Martini episcopi et confessoris. Et incipit Ego quiem frater unanimis leibellum quem de vita sancti Martini scripseram. In fine. Liber sancti Martini de sancta trinitate et incipit Clemns trinitas est una divintas. Hec in uno parvo volumine et antiqua scritura legibili satis the latter "all this in a single small volume, perfectly legible in ancient script" (Clm 14675, f. 34v).

Notes: Scribe is identified by Bischoff and de Hamel as one who worked extensively for Baturich, abbot of St. Emmeram and bishop of Regensburg 817-48, on at least nine mss. at Sir Thomas Phillips (1792-1872). Emmeram's, including Munich Staatsbibliothek, Clm. 14077-78; 14200, and 14377, see Bischoff, 1974, nos. 62a-75; and notes in vertical file on Poole 27 at Liily Lilbrary. This same scribe wrote a pontifical now in Vienna, ÖNB, Cod. ser. nov. 2762. A second close-contemporary hand has made expansions and corrections throughout the text. This appears to be the hand which has added the second title of "St. Bricii" to the front paper pastedown, possibly the abby librarian Menger. A third hand in later secretary script has added occasional marginal comments. Latin
