Description:
CCCC MS 371 was the personal manuscript of Eadmer of Canterbury OSB (c.1060-c.1124), a monk of Christ Church, and the friend and biographer of Anselm of Canterbury. The manuscript provides the primary witness for most of Eadmer's shorter writings (opuscula), including his major hagiographical works and other letters, hymns and sermons. It also contains the sermons De beatitudine perennis uitae and De ordinatione beati Gregorii, which are reputedly by Anselm of Canterbury OSB (d. 1109), a view which has recently been supported by Hayward.
