FIN-Hy F.m.I.26
Fragmented noted missal,12th century. 24 folios. Unknown origin. The fragments of the manuscript have been preserved as covers for tax accounts from the district of Ylä-Satakunta (Finland) from years 1583–1587 and 1598. This suggests that the manuscript was in the possession of one the churches in the area and had probably arrived there in the Middle Ages. The earliest parish in the district is Sastamala, which is assumed to date from the early thirteenth century. Given the date of the manuscript and the central position of Sastamala within the district, this can be suggested as a tentative medieval home of the manuscript. (Jaakko Tahkokallio)
