MS 115 and MS 126 are sixteenth-century notebooks containing lectures from the four lecture series given in Canterbury by Pierre Alexandre in 1552 and 1553 at the request of Cranmer who hoped to make Canterbury a centre of learning. Pierre Alexandre (b. c. 1498-d. 1563), who also wrote under the pseudonym Simon Alexius, was a reformation theologian who came to England with Pietro Martire Vermigli (Peter Martyr) (1500-62) and came into the employ of Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556).
