This article provides an extensive description and analysis of the Bern Physiologus (Burgerbibliothek Bern, Codex Bongarsianus 318), the earliest known illustrated Latin Physiologus manuscript. Woodruff describes the manuscript, the text and the illustrations in great detail, and places the manuscript and illustrations in the context of the ninth century, with reference to the Alexandrian origins of its style. There are numerous black and white illustrations.
