The columns are set out with the regulations forming the main text and beside each decisions taken by the Synods in relation to these regulations. It includes a list of all the Synods held by the Reformed Church held in France between 1559-1644. Printed editions of this text were not produced until the following year. We have been able to trace one other manuscript of this text from Lyon with the same date at the Bibliothèque de la Société de l'Histoire de Protestantisme Français in Paris (Ms.75). Provenance: Jean-Baptiste Marduel, Vicar of St. Nicetus, Lyon (bookplate).
