Description:
The miscellany in CCCC MS 459, written in the thirteenth century, consists of over twenty-five tracts by many authors on a diversity of subjects. These subjects include sermons, theology, the virtues and vices, sin, penance and confession. The authors include Pope Innocent III (1160/1-1216) (his De miseria humanae conditionis), Robert Grosseteste (d. 1253), William de Montibus (d. 1213), Thomas of Woburn OCist, Anselm of Canterbury OSB (d. 1109), Robert de Curzon (d. 1219) and Stephen Langton (c. 1165-1228). The book has the press mark of the Benedictine abbey of Peterborough and was used for reading in the refectory.
