A Previously Unknown Ordo Prophetarum in a Manuscript Fragment in Zagreb


In lieu of an abstract, the first paragraph of the essay follows:

This paper must begin with an explanation since I can only present what is necessarily incomplete research-incomplete because of the recent fragility of Yugoslavia's political climate and the havoc which has descended upon Croatia's cultural life. Nevertheless, the very good fortune I have had in receiving the enabling microfilm in the first place prior to those hostilities from Dr. Doris Baričević of Zagreb has provided me with information about an important document for the study of medieval music-drama-a unique Ordo Prophetarum-though the fragment is inaccessible to me and hence cannot be personally examined.
