CCCC 028
Origen's Homilies on the Book of Numbers
12th century

This manuscript has a two-column layout. There are two large litterae notabiliores in the first two folios. Each is yellow, blue, green, and red, with patterned bodies and floral designs in the bowl of the letters. There is a running header across each folio. The enlarged capitals are relatively frequent, and share colors with the litterae notabiliores. Rubrics appear before and after enlarged capitals and litterae notabiliores. Often, columns run one line long, and the text that wouldn’t fit is written into the bottom margin. Near the end of the manuscript, there is white space several characters wide after each sentence.
