    This was another rescue from an estate sale sadly I was not able to save the frame, on the bottom left corner there is a few indiscernible letters followed by the numbers 731 in light pencil. More to come

      I think it may be a page from the "Teutonic Knights Bible" size of page and calligraphy are very similar.

      It's from the Book of Haggai. It is part of the Latin Vulgate Bible.

      Haggai: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haggai
      Book of Haggai : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Haggai

      Latin text and parallel English here:
      http://www.latinvulgate.com/verse.aspx?t=0&b=42&c=1

      This is one transliteration of the Latin text:
      http://iteadjmj.com/BIBLIAP/Aggaeus.pdf

      There are slight differences in the text that you have.

      You have most of it here on this one page.

      Your page includes the Prophecy of Aggaeus (Haggai) I & II ( lines 1 - 10 ..... except for the last word.)

      Chapter II lines 11- 24 are in the reverse - or on another page.
