Collectanea varia
Note

Excerpts and notes on history, geography, topography of the Nordic countries (particularly Norwegian); genealogies; transcripts of medieval diplomas and letters. The main content is in Latin, some documents and excerpts in Nordic languages.

A few documents of this collection of texts previously belonged to the Danish historian Arild Hvitfeldt. As a result the collection was previously called Varia Adversaria Hvitfeldiana; apart from this, the content of the manuscript has no connection to him.
