Description:
CCCC MS 68 is a compilation of texts, several relating to liturgical matters, written by a certain Tielmann, son of Clerward, cleric of Utrecht, for Walter Crome, fellow of Gonville Hall, in 1432. In the same year Tielmann also wrote for Crome MS 114/183 in Gonville and Caius College. This Tielmann is not the same as the one who wrote some manuscripts now in Balliol College, Oxford. The manuscript was given to Cambridge University Library by Crome in 1444 and was there in 1473. In 1567 Andrew Perne, Master of Peterhouse and several times Vice-Chancellor of the University, gave it to Matthew Parker, and it came to Corpus with his collection in 1575. Another part of the same manuscript, now Cambridge, King's College, MS 9, was detached before Parker acquired MS 68. Among the texts included are Isidore of Seville (c. 560-636), De ecclesiasticis officiis, and William of Malmesbury OSB (c. 1080-1143), Abbreviatio Amalarii, an abbreviation of the work of Amalarius of Metz (c. 775/80-c. 850), De ecclesiasticis officiis.
