Short description Three parchment leaves (ca. 1425-1450), containing a short chronicle about the Premonstratensian monastery Berne near Heusden, from the story of its foundation in 1134 until the year 1236. The chronicle mainly focuses on the life of Folcoldus (Fulco, died 1149), who founded and entered the monastery after a miraculous escape from his enemies. Apart from stories from the (pre-monastic) life of Folcoldus, the chronicle includes a short history of the monastery under its first nine abbots.
