Description:
MS 66, as described by M. R. James, included half of a manuscript belonging to the Cistercian abbey of Sawley (Yorks.) and half of a manuscript belonging to the Benedictine abbey of Bury St Edmunds. The other two halves of the Bury and Sawley manuscripts are bound together as Cambridge, UL MS Ff. 1. 27. However, MS 66 has since been separated into MS 66 (Sawley MS) and MS 66A (Bury MS). The volume now known as MS 66 contains copies of the Imago mundi of Honorius Augustodunensis (fl. first half of twelfth century); Extracts from Pliny the Elder and Solinus; the Historia Anglorum; De statu ecclesiae by Gilbert of Limerick (d. 1145); Theobald of Étampes's Letter to Robert Bloet, Bishop of Lincoln; De sex alis cherubim and De tribus in penitentia considerandis both by Clement of Llanthony OSA (d. after 1169), and a treatise on confession. The Imago mundi and De sex alis cherubim contain four large framed coloured drawings and a map of the world.
