Breviaries consisted of psalms, antiphons, lectionary, martyrology, and other features. This breviary for Benedictine Use includes calendrical notes that point to a composition date circa 1431 and also includes an indulgence approved in 1431 by Pope Eugenius IV (1383–1447, r. 1431–1447). An early inscription places the manuscript in the Benedictine monastery of Santa Justina at Padolirone, near Padua, Italy.
