Bilingual New Testament

Produced in the years between 1325 and 1330, this manuscript contains a Latin text of the New Testament, including the Gospels, the letters of Saint Paul, Revelations, The Acts of the Apostles, and other New Testament Epistles. The Latin text appears in two columns, with the French translation appearing in a third.

The New Testament belongs to a group of manuscripts produced in Naples during the mid-fourteenth century, most probably by an illuminator of Picard origin living in Angevin Naples. Some, but not all of the manuscripts from his workshop contain texts in French.
