Manuscript Summary
During his time as librarian (1729-1732), Fr. Aemilian Zeller (1691-1730) compiled a catalog of manuscripts, ordered alphabetically by author. He quietly omitted from the catalog all manuscripts where an author was not given, such as copies of the Bible, or Psalters, or texts by unknown authors. The manuscripts bear the signatures of the older manuscript catalog by Father Hermann Schenk (1653-1706) from the period before 1700 (cf. Cod. Sang. 1280; circa Class. 1, n. 44). Father Pius Kolb, Abbey Librarian from 1748, added the new signatures introduced by him (cf. Cod. Sang. 1400 and 1401, circa D.n. 88). to the earlier signatures in the Zeller mansucript catalog. The catalog offers no indications regarding the age, type of script, or availability of the individual manuscripts. (smu)
