CCCC MS 434 opens with a dialogue between a brother and sister regarding the sister's desire to learn about the Christian faith, with the result that the brother translates for her parts of the New Testament. The book contains a Middle English translation of the Catholic Epistles, Epistles of Paul, Acts of the Apostles, and part of St. Matthew's Gospel. The text has been edited by Anna Paues, and is also in Cambridge, Selwyn Coll. 108.L.19. The manuscript dates from c. 1400.
