Very probably this book came from the same place as MS 193 (? Corbie). A note in the college's copy of Nasmith's Catalogue gives Dr Traube's opinion that it is French, probably Northern.

Homilies on Luke (transl. by Jerome)
CCCC MS 334 contains Jerome's translation of Origen's homilies on Luke. It was written in the type of script known as "a-z minuscule", one of the many European pre-Caroline minuscules, probably at a nunnery in Laon in the eighth century. It shares scribes with other Laon books, and has a note saying that it was written by one 'Fortunatus'. It contains some fish and animal decoration very typical in manuscripts of its date from northern France. There is no record of how it came into Parker's hands, and no evidence that it was in England in the Middle Ages.
