There are a few corrections of cent. xii, very possibly in English hands, but I have not found any notes or scribbles which give a clue to the monastic provenance.

Prognosticon futuri saeculi
CCCC MS 399 is a copy of the Prognosticon futuri saeculi by Julian of Toledo (c. 642-90) written in northern France probably in the first two thirds of the ninth century. It has some marginal 'tironian notae' - the form of shorthand devised by Cicero's secretary Tiro and revived in the Carolingian period. It seems to have come to England before the end of the tenth century, where some very minor alterations were made to the text. In the twelfth century a decorated opening title page was added. The manuscript was used by Matthew Parker or one of his secretaries, who underlined some significant phrases in red crayon.
