In 1902, the manuscript was obtained by the Ministry of Education for the National Library of Serbia. It disappeared during evacuation and retreat of the Serbian Army in the World War I in 1915. It was returned with the 13th-century Belgrade Prophetologion to the National Library after being purchased from the Federal Republic of Germany in 1969.
