The manuscript shows one foliation and a pagination. Continuous modern pagination written in pencil in Arabic numerals placed at the top external corner of each page. References are given here to the Arabic numbering.
Foliation in Roman numerals in red ink from pages 5 to 37 and in black ink from 39 to 43 and between 47 and 59. Foliation is placed at top right corner of the recto.


The Agnus Dei (p.3) was added by a modern hand on a folio that was originally left empty.

Occasionally portions of text and/or notes were erased and sometimes the text was replaced (e.g. p.42 and 58).
