Sermons of Gibuinus (attrib.) and Petrus Comestor (attrib.)
CCCC MS 212 dates from the late twelfth century. The manuscript contains sermons attributed to Gibuinus of Troyes (d. c.1150) and Petrus Comestor (d. c. 1187). The manuscript is written in several fine hands, and the decoration includes attractive initials and some zoo-anthropomorphic figures in coloured outline. It has been suggested that, late in the Middle Ages, the manuscript may have been part of the library of the Brigittine abbey of Syon in Middlesex. It is bound in an old limp vellum binding. As a result of the fragility of this binding it has only been possible to image the exterior and interior of the covers and part of the text pages, ff. 1r-152r.
