  • Title: Ricerche sul breviario di Santa Giulia (Brescia, Biblioteca Queriniana, ms. H VI 21) [The monastery of Santa Giulia, Brescia, by the eleventh century had passed from imperial to local patronage. The paleographic and musical evidence place the origin of the manuscript in the eleventh century with additions made in the twelfth. Saint Agatha, a virgin martyr of noble birth, who had a special appeal to well-born nuns, received particular attention. The manuscript also shows scarce evidence of the glossing of liturgical texts.
