Notes:


Written in England, second half of 12th century. The manuscript was originally two separate sections (A) (f.1-147) and (B) (f.148-173), which had been brought together by the late twelfth century (see contents list f.1v); f.63-147v, which at first sight could be supposed a separable section, are integral to (A).

The use of the punctus flexus in item 8(d), but not elsewhere in (A), may reflect the Cistercian origin of the work and hence the exemplar, rather than the context in which this copy was made. The similarity of the writing of the list of contents on f.1v and of the contemporary Durham ex-libris on f.2 suggest strongly that items 1-7 and 8 were written for the monastery, after 1163 (see item 8a); cf. also item 4's added title.
