MS. Bodl. 108
Summary Catalogue no.: 1960
Written about A.D. 1457 by John Bury, an Austin friar, against the Repressor of over much blaming of the Clergy by bp. Reginald Pecock. This reply, planned in two books, of which only the first is here, consists of a list of the forty-two chapters, a preface to archbp. Thomas Bourchier, in which alone the title of the work and author's name occur, and the treatise. Extracts from it are given in the Rolls Series edition of Pecock's work (vol. ii, p. 575, see Introduction in vol. i, p. xl: a coloured facsimile of fol. 1 of the present MS. is also in both volumes). The parts quoted from Pecock and some other passages are in English: and there are marginal notes and additions: at foll. 50v-51v occurs a list of some of Pecock's works.
