This chapter contextualises the mass-produced Latin Bibles of the thirteenth and fourteenth century, addressing both innovation and conservatism in their layout and use. It explores their simplicity on the background of their predecessor, the highly complex glossed Bibles; it then moves to address the use of these Bibles in exegesis, preaching, and the liturgy, arguing against a simplistic transformative view. It introduces key features, such as the chapter division and the use of Bibles in the liturgy, which are then explored throughout the book.

Keywords:   manuscripts, liturgy, preaching, exegesis, gloss
