Girona Beatus

Girona Beatus

The Girona Beatus (Girona, Cathedral archives, MS. 7) is a 10th century illuminated manuscript of the Commentary on the Apocalypse by Beatus of Liébana. The manuscript was commissioned by an abbot named Dominicus about which we have no more information. The scribe was a priest named Senior, who wrote in a West Gothic script. The manuscript was illuminated by a monk named Emeterius and a nun named Ende. The manuscript was probably created at the monastery at Tábara. There are 284 extant folios which measure 400mm by 260mm. The manuscript is copiously illustrated with 184 surviving miniatures.
