Sacramentary of the Notre Dame in Paris

Manuscript reference: Vatican Mss Ottobonianus Lat. 313

mss written before 850 for Paris Cathedral; from Roman exemplar, the Hadrianum, dating 786

Published by H. A. Wilson, The Gregorian Sacramentary under Charles the Great, London 1915, p. 139.

The sacramentary contains two sections: (a) the authoritative sacramentary sent to Charlemagne by Pope Hadrian I "which may not be changed"; and (b) adaptations and additions for the Church in Gaul, possibly edited by Alcuin.

The text is almost identical with that in two other sacramentaries: Reginae 337 and Cambrai 164
