History

Origin

The manuscript is written in Iceland c. 1400.

Provenance

According to the note on f. 7v-8r in Árni Magnússon's catalogue of Icelandic parchment manuscripts, AM 435 a 4to, AM 235 fol. once belonged to the cathedral of Skálhollt: “Af Maria Ægyptiacå hinne bersyndugu, nockud lited aptanaf. Magnuss Saga Eyia Jarls: Jons Saga Hola biskups. vantar mikid aptan vid. Petrs Saga postula, vantar framan vid. Margretu meyar Saga. af Martha og Magdalena. Miracula nonnulla S. Olavi, ex illius vita desumta. af Fides Spe og Charitate. S. Laurentii Pislarvottz Saga. Mariu meyiar Saga, stutt. Augustini Saga (eins og su sem stendr i næst fyrirfraranda codice). Mauritii Saga. Pals Saga postula, stutt. Flagellatio crucis in Brytho. S Theodori Saga. Martini Saga Turonensis. Ceciliu meyiar Saga, vantar vid endann. Þar inne er og de Tiburtio et Valeriano. Bokin er i litlu folio, bandlauss. hefur fyrrum vered eign Skalholltz kirkiu, ut puto”.

A note on the bottom margin of f. 3v from the sixteenth century, most probably a pen-trial written at Skálholt, says: “Veʀ broder avgmvnd med gvsd gvds nad | byskup i skalhollte giorvm godvm munnvm kvnigt”. Bishop Ögmundur Pálsson, former abbey of Viðey (since 1515), was elected bishop of Skálholt 1519.

A note on f. 64v furthermore tells that the codex belonged to the Bishop of Skálholt, Brynjólfur Sveinsson: “mier er sagt ad Brinjolfur Biskub eigi þessa bok en ecki JTS a T st” (Jón Torfason, priest of Torfastaðir from 1646 to 1656)

An other note on f. 68r, written in a coarse hand, says: “sier ion a þessv skrædv”.

Acquisition

At the bottom margin of f. 3r Árni Magnússon wrote: “fra Sr Þorleife Arnasyne ä Kalfafelle 1711”. Þorleifur Árnason was a scribe of bishop Brynjólfur Sveinsson's, later to be priest at Kálfafell in Fljótshverfi (1659-1707).
