As indicated in the title, this manuscript was copied by a Benedictine monk at the Bavarian abbey of Prüfening in the second half of the twelfth century. It includes a set of anatomical drawings, the so-called five-figure series. This page depicts veins (left) and arteries (right); the next page shows bones, nerves, and muscles. These images, along with a very simplified version of Galenic texts, probably also echoing the anatomical teaching from Hellenistic Alexandria, were designed for teaching. Drawings of this style could be found in other Persian and Latin manuscripts as well.
