Commentary on Catholic Epistles
CCCC MS 160 is an early twelfth-century copy of Bede on the seven Catholic Epistles (the New Testament books James, I Peter, II Peter, I John, II John, III John, and Jude, as distinct from the Pauline epistles). James recorded a medieval ex libris inscription, now lost, which stated that the book was from in the refectory at Peterborough Abbey, and a thirteenth-century list of refectory books there, preserved in CCCC MS 459, includes Beda super Canonicas Epistolas, to be read in the weeks before Rogationtide. The manuscript also contains flyleaves from a service book with music, datable on the grounds of decoration to the second quarter of the fifteenth century.
