- Based on the hagiography of St. George, the author mentions the passion of the saint and asks for the protection of the martyr. Following each prayer, there is a list of hidden names which have magical power.
Several notes in the upper margin of the pages serve as captions for the illustrations of the martyrdom of St. George, but some of the explanations and the images don't match. Probably the captions were written first and the illustrations done later.
Twenty-three illustrations of scenes from the saint's life. Most in black ink, some in pencil.
Text is in black ink with the names of saints in red ink.
The manuscript is composed of four quires of ten leaves and one quire of six leaves.
Layout: two columns per page, with 13 lines of text per page.
