Date of the cover
Specification The manuscript was bound again in a new cover. Kühler (Johannes Brinkerinck, p. ix) mentions a cover made of parchment in 1914, which he considers to be of later date than the manuscript itself. The current cover therefore must be dated after 1914.

Order of the data in the text
Type of registration chronologically
Specification The chronology of the deaths originally structured the collection. Within the collection vitae are combined thematically (Bollmann calls it a 'Vita-in-vita-system' p. 488 and 609-613). These clusters are structured in different manners.
Filiation
Filiation Bears resemblance to Collection Van Rhemen number 1 (Zwolle, HCO) which is probably of earlier date, but less complete. Parts are -translated in Latin- also recorded in Collectanea ad historiam Devotionis Modernae (Brussels, RL 8849-8859).
