Text of Peter Riga's Aurora, a versification of the Bible. Includes his prose prologue, corresponding to Beichner's edition, v. 1, p. 7-8. Text proper begins with verses on Genesis, corresponding to Beichner, v. 1, p. 21, and concludes with the Acts of the Apostles, the end of which corresponds to Beichner, v. 2, p. 668. Followed by 4 lines of verse of unknown authorship, written in the same hand as the Aurora, then followed by the first line repeated in a different hand (14th-century), and finally by "Explicit Aurora" in yet another 14th-century hand.
