Devotional and Liturgical Texts
CCCC MS 537, probably made in Prague, contains a great number of late fourteenth- or early fifteenth-century extracts and copies of devotional and liturgical texts. These include the Oratio circa elevationem missae by Jan Isner (d. 1411) on f. 54v (also in CCCC MS 500, f. 11r) , numerous prayers, including some attributed to Augustine and one from the Stimulus amoris by James of Milan OFM (fl. c. 1296). The book retains its original binding. This volume is part of the Elbing collection; a group of manuscripts which belonged to a Brigittine convent at Elbing (Elblag), near Gdansk. The collection was donated to Corpus Christi College by either Richard Pernham (1583?-1628) or his wife Mary, whose name is in many of these books.
