Description:
This manuscript contains texts by Richard of Saint-Victor OSA (d. 1173), Petrus Alfonsi (1062-1110), Dioscurus (d. 454), and Augustine. The texts are copied by hands of varying quality. Dating from the twelfth and early thirteenth centuries, its classmark indicates a provenance at the Benedictine abbey of the Blessed Virgin Mary at York. The flyleaves of this manuscript comprise fragments of an eleventh-century copy of Sallust's Jugurthine War; according to Lapidge, this is the only surviving evidence for knowledge of this text in England before 1100.
