Description:
The miscellany of texts in CCCC MS 356 are in three separate parts of various dates probably bound together in the sixteenth century or later. The first, dating from the second half of the thirteenth century, is the Summa Qui bene praesunt by Richard of Wetheringsett (fl. c. 1200-30), first recorded chancellor of Cambridge University at some time between 1215 and 1232. This text is also contained in CCCC MS 337. The second part, also of the thirteenth century, contains several texts including Hugh of Saint-Victor OSA (d. 1141), De institutione nouiciorum, the De sex alis cherubim by Alain of Lille (d. 1202), but also attributed to Clement of Llanthony OSA (d. after 1169), and treatises on baptism and the mass. The third part is of the late tenth century and contains a Glossary of Latin words. In the margin of f. 20r in this section is a Sanctus with neumes.
