This is the only Bible this kind in Poland with the colorful canons of Eusebius, the Bamberg Apocalypse and the original translation by Jakub Wujek written in a modernized "Carolynic" font.
In the Middle Ages, the Bibles were mainly used for celebrating the sacred liturgy, calculating movable holidays in the calendar, and supporting the functioning of the church. They were rewritten by scribes and rarely contained all the scriptures in one book - due to the volume of all biblical books, they were limited to selected parts, most often to the New Testament, supplemented with the Apocalypse of St. John the Evangelist. The most beautiful manuscript announcing the imminent end of the world was the Bamberg Apocalypse from the 11th century.
