Short Description

Dating from ca. 600, this manuscript contains the oldest known version of Pope Gregory the Great ‘s Liber Regulae Pastoralis or The Book of the Pastoral Rule, commonly known in English as Pastoral Care. It was originally written by the sainted pontiff ca. 590, shortly after his papal election, and was later revised by him. Pastoral Care became one of the most influential works concerning the responsibilities of the clergy that was ever written and was widely distributed – the book was translated into Greek at the behest of the Eastern Roman Emperor Maurice and was translated into Anglo-Saxon by King Alfred the Great himself. The oldest surviving manuscript containing the full revised text was written in uncial script without breaks between words and is adorned by initials in red, green, and yellow.
