Description This manuscript contains liturgical prayers for the use of a bishop. It is among the first known works of one of the most prominent Greek scribes of the Ottoman period, Metropolitan Matthew of Myra (fl. 1596-1624). If the manuscript ever contained a note with his name, this is now lost, but the peculiar handwriting is clearly attributable to his hand.
