Alleluias of the Paschal Time in the Medieval Manuscripts of Ljubljana

  • Jurij Snoj

Abstract

The article presents the alleluias of the Paschal Time as written down in the medieval Mass manuscripts, graduals and missals, kept in Ljubljana. In addition to one partly preserved and three fully preserved manuscripts, numerous fragments of once integral, but later destroyed manuscripts are taken into account. The Missal of Kranj (Archives of the Diocese of Ljubljana, MS 19, 15th c.) contains the same series of Paschal alleluias as the printed missals of Aquileia from the late 15th and 16th c.; the Franciscan Gradual (The Library of the Franciscan Monastery, inv. no. 6773, early 16th c.) contains the same series of Paschal alleluias as the printed Roman missals from the late 15th c. The presumably Carthusian Gradual (National and University Library, MS 22, 13th c.) contains a rather indistinct series of Paschal alleluias, while the 59-sheet fragment of a gradual (Archives of the SR of Slovenia, Coll. I. 1., 12th – 13th c.) is presumed to have belonged to a Cistercian manuscript on the very basis of the preserved series of its Paschal alleluias. Of the two neumatic fragments, the former containing partly preserved Mass formularies of the Paschal Time is supposed to have belonged to the rite of Aquileia, while the identity of the latter remains unascertained. Other fragments contain only a small number of Paschal alleluias each; most of them are supposed to have belonged to manuscripts of the rite of Aquileia.
