Table of contents:
Stephen Langton's commentaries on Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Ezra, Nehemiah and I and II Maccabees
This is a thirteenth-century manuscript containing commentaries by Stephen Langton (c. 1150-1228) on Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Ezra, Nehemia, and I and II Maccabees. It belongs to the category of manuscripts of Langton's works described by Lacombe and Smalley as 'collections without order'. As with CCCC MS 31, this collection of Langton's commentaries belonged to the Savigniac and Cistercian abbey of St Mary's, Coggeshall. It is one of the few books in the Parker Library to retain its original binding, a fine and well-preserved example. As a result of the fragility of this binding it has only been possible to image the exterior and interior of the covers and ff. 1r-9v, 234r, 235r and f. ir (back flyleaf).
