This fragment from Königsfelden Monastery consists of only 12 leaves (= 1 quire) and contains a complete calendar (necrology) with records of the days of death of the members of the donor family from the House of Habsburg, as well as that of the confessor of Queen Agnes of Hungary (Lamprecht of Austria), up until 1330. After the dissolution of the monastery, it passed into private hands in Bern in 1528, and in the 19th century, it was donated to the Stadtbibliothek of Bern.
