In the library of the Cathedral of Pamplona existed in the seventeenth century codex containing exposure Beatus Apocalypse, as we respect the Jesuit Father José Moret in 1665, in his “Historical research of antiques Reyno Navarre”.
Currently there is no such “Blessed” in the library of the City Council of Pamplona cathedral. It seems that the book was stolen from the shelf the mid-nineteenth century, being able to identify, quite possibly, with that in the National Library of France, Nouveau. Acq. Lat. 1366, since his writing and illuminations test a Spanish origin; but the most convincing argument is their origin Navarre glued into the binding, King Charles III of Navarre, led the Bishop of Dax, Juan Bauses, and the prior of Roncesvalles, Miguel de Tavar, in 1389 document.
The immediate story is that the codex was purchased in Spain by a bookseller in Lyon, Milan then another and finally a third of Paris, who bought the National Library of France in 1879, as has L. Delisle in ” Les manuscrits Beatus de l’apocalypse “in Mélanges of paléographie et de bibliographie, Paris, 1880.
