CCCC MS 31 is a thirteenth-century manuscript containing a copy of the Commentary on the Twelve Minor Prophets by Stephen Langton (c. 1150-1228), which originally belonged to the Savigniac and Cistercian abbey of St Mary's, Coggeshall, along with CCCC MS 89. Stephen's work on the minor prophets has received little scholarly attention in comparison to his sermons. The manuscript also contains a late twelfth-century fragment of the pseudo-Clementine Recognitions.
