Notes: This folio presents the conclusion of I Maccabees (16:19-24) and the first two chapters of II Maccabees (2:33). II Maccabees was particularly important in Christian thought for it contains scripture's most explicit mention of creation ex nihilo and the earliest scriptural support for the practice of prayers for the dead.
