The catalogue contains detailed description and up-to-date identifiers of thousands of texts, as well as analyses of the material production of every manuscript. The analyses separate the various layers of each manuscript, and the different copiers who worked together on the writing. It analyzes physical data as well, like typography, where the manuscript was produced, as well as dating each layer based on codicological and palaeographical standards
In addition, the catalogue includes the different versions of the manuscripts, as well as the different listings added to them over time.
This catalogue, through the long cooperation between the National Library of Israel and the Vatican Apostolic Library is now accessible online.
