This Benedictine codex is one of the best conserved of the few known remaining examples.

It contains the ceremonial and the customs of the monastery of San Benito in Valladolid. It describes the responsibilities of the various offices, the prayers and the practices followed in the administration of the sacraments, funeral rites and alms. Of particular interest is the enumeration of the Bible readings.

The manuscript comes from the monastery of San Feliu de Guíxols, the only Benedictine congregation in Girona that belonged to the order of Valladolid.
