Babel MS 41
A single fragment is at present known from this manuscript but it does provide the full width of a folio with text of the Decretals and extensive commentary. It appears to have been imported into England soon after production and to have survived into the early seventeenth century.

History and further information
There are annotations, both textual and figurative (faces drawn next to the main body of the Decretals); these show anglicana features (s. xiii/xiv), demonstrating that this manuscript was used in England in the Middle Ages.
Used as a wrapper, presumably in England, for a pamphlet printed in Venice in 1611, the manuscript from which it came would appear to have survived into the seventeenth century before being dismantled.
