Commentary on Psalms
CCCC MS 533 contains a fifteenth-century copy of the Commentary on Psalms 68-150 by Nicholas de Gorran OP (1232-95) who served as the prior of the Dominican convent of St James in Paris. He also served as both confessor and adviser to the French king, Philip IV (d. 1314). This volume is part of the Elbing collection; a group of manuscripts which belonged to a Brigittine convent at Elbing (Elblag), near Gdansk. The collection was donated to Corpus Christi College by either Richard Pernham (1583?-1628) or his wife Mary, whose name is in many of these books.
