Type of text carrier Manuscript with more than one text
Classification Composite
Short description Composite manuscript with a number of texts, including a chronicle (Annales Egmundenses) and two lives of nuns from the Oostbroek monastery near Utrecht. The manuscript consists of 4 codicological units, probably combined in the 11th century, at the pages of which texts were added in the 12th and 13th century.
Additional remarks Originally the manuscript contained a copy (ca. 1100) of the Annales Xantenses (written in the 9th century in the abbey of Lorsch). An anonymous Egmond author (ca. 1120) - using empty pages and adding pages - added notes about the period before the starting point of the Annales Xantenses and continued the Annales Xantenses up to the beginning of the 12th century. Several others added even more information up to the early 14th century. This editing of the text has become known as the Annales Egmundenses. The medieval title of the manuscript was Donationes ecclesie Traiectensis et nostre, cum cronicis.
