Commentary on Matthew
This manuscript is a fine twelfth-century copy of Hrabanus Maurus (c. 780-856), Commentary on Matthew. It is one of very few manuscripts in the Parker Library to retain its original binding, a very fine example of its time. 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-4v. The provenance of the manuscript is the Cistercian abbey of Rievaulx, where it was listed in a late twelfth-century catalogue. As with CCCC MS 11, this manuscript attests to the continued influence of Carolingian scholarship in twelfth-century England.
