Commentary on Vnum ex quatuor
William of Nottingham's Commentary on the Gospels, contained in CCCC MS 305, is essentially a commentary on the concordance of the four Gospels and derives from works such as Zacharias of Besançon (Chrysopolitanus) OPrem (fl. c. 1131-60), De concordia euangelistarum (Vnum ex quatuor), which is contained in CCCC MS 27. The book has been dated to the last quarter of the fourteenth century. This William of Nottingham (d. after 1330) was provincial of the English Franciscans 1316-30 and must be distinguished from another William of Nottingham (d. after 1254) also a Franciscan, to whom the earlier literature ascribed this work.
