Titulus primo folio inscriptus, et uti videtur, a quodam alio codice divulsus, induxit Stanleium ut hunc codicem nominaret librum Hugonis de Girunde de penitentia. On f. ir Liber Hugonis de Girunde de penitencia magdal.; repeated on f. iir. In the Eastry Catalogue of Christ Church, Canterbury, no. 1310 (Ancient Libraries, p. 113) is Liber H. de Gerunde de penitencia Magdalene. H. de Gerunde was living in 1239.
CCCC MS 222, which originally formed one volume with CCCC MS 226, contains two religious tracts, on the conception of Mary and the conception of Christ, both of which are attributed to Richard of Saint-Victor OSA (d. 1173). There are various later pencil notes and additions. The manuscript belonged to Hugh of Girune (d. after 1239), a monk of Christ Church, Canterbury, who donated it to that house, as attested by the inscription on f.ir, Liber Hugonis de Girunde de penitentia Magdalene. This folio was originally the title page of CCCC MS 226.
