Description:
CCCC MS 480 is a twelfth-century Greek manuscript containing psalms, canticles and some hymns. It must have been in England as early as the thirteenth century, and was evidently much used, with marginal Latin transliterations of some of the psalms, and other notes in a variety of hands, which link it with the circle of Robert Grosseteste (d. 1253). It was believed in Parker's time to have belonged to Theodore of Tarsus, and according to a note on f.1r is in the same hand as Cambridge University Library MS Ff.1.24. It is certainly later, but may possibly have a similar provenance.
