Report No. a162

Collectio Victorina prima

ante 1181


Alternative Names

St Victor I



Part of the ‘French Group’ (with the Collectiones Cantabrigiensis, Parisiensis prima, and Aureavallensis), with 146 items compiled no later than 1181. It can be subdivided in two parts. (1) fols. 226r–250v (cc. 1–110) seem to derive from a common source with Cantabrigiensis, but Victorina prima is likely older. (2) fols. 251v–263r (cc. 111–146) seem to derive from a common source with Parisiensis prima. This part is also related to Victorina secunda.
