E. Syriac service-book
The ms. is imperfect, the rubrics are much faded, and the nature of the services is not very clear. They include hymns to be said in procession. At the end of the ms. there are orders of service for the Sundays after Easter. The services are associated with the Monastery of Mar Yonan at Anbar.
Written in a neat lean E. Syriac hand of about the 16th cent.
Bound in wooden boards, the spine now repaired.
