Description

Customizable copy (optional) bound by Amigos del Códice.

The Beatus of Fernando I and Doña Sancha, also called Beatus of Facundo (Facundus scripsit) by the name of its author, is preserved in the BNE with the signature Beato de Liébana, In Apocalipsin, Códice de Fernando I and Doña Sancha, Ms. glass 14-2. This manuscript was written around the middle of the 11th century, according to the text on folio 316: Era bis quadragies et V post millesima; that is, in 1047. The artist was careful to number the notebooks on the back of the last folio. Thus, we see the number I in Roman on folios 25v, II on 33v, and so on, since the notebooks are perfectly regular with 4 diptychs or eight sheets. This means that two ternions (12 folios) containing the Preliminaries were added in front, at another time and by another hand, although very close in time.

This Beatus of the National Library stands out for its color that is not seen in any other, and for the perfection of the compositions that, according to Williams, make it “the most elegant of the Blessed”.

Two very expensive facsimile editions have been made of this codex: the first, made in 1994 by the Moleiro publishing house, now out of print, and the second, made in 2007 by the Versol publishing house (we can provide you with copies of both). The second does not sell the study book if the facsimile is not purchased, the price of which exceeds €5,000. The first, on the other hand, since the edition is out of print, now offers the study book. In both cases, copies of both editions can be found on the second-hand market.

The facsimile offered here is the one made by Amigos del Códice based on the files downloaded from the Hispanic Digital Library of the National Library of Spain, and is based on the original preserved in said public institution, it is bound in leather with gilt titles and He does not detract from his older brothers. It is a unique opportunity to get this work at an exceptional price. It does NOT have a study book, it is only a facsimile, the translation of Blessed’s work from Latin to Spanish can be downloaded from the internet or we can provide it to you, if you wish.
