Information from Catalogue: Gregorious IX Pope. Decretalium libri fragmentum saec XIII cum glossis.
Additional Notes: The upper right corner of the recto (left for the verso) is missing. In general the MS is in bad condition and difficult to read. The text is so faded in large swaths so as to be illegible. The leaf was cut badly from the codex so that on the left of the recto there is only a partial column of commentary remaining. The top has been cut so as to leave out text. The MS is worn around the edges and has suffered damage from smoke, if not heat from relatively close contact with fire, as a result of which the vellum has shriveled somewhat. It is difficult to say due to the extent of the damage, but it seems that the recto is the hair side. There is a large dark stain from some sort of dark liquid on the bottom of the recto.
I was able to confirm the identity of this manuscript by using an internet search engine to locate a portion of text that is legible in the manuscript: "suos quorum duo erant" in the 5th line of the second paragraph of the left column of the verso can be entered into Google. The single return is an online text of Pope Gregorius' Decretalium at Bibliotheca Augustana. Thus the incipit is from Capitulum III: "antiquam institutionem facere videntur." The explicit differs slightly in the wording, but it is from Capitulum XI and reads as follows in the online text: "Ex parte parentum M. quondam iuvenculae nobis est intimatum, quod, quum in creusculo noctis nobilis vir N. dominus I. De insula Butardi dioecceseos Turonensis eidem iuvenculae posuisset insidias, volens eam opprimere..."
