MS. Bodl. 169
Summary Catalogue no.: 2030
With lists of chapters and prologue.
Plain white sheepskin on boards, English 15th (?) cent. work.
A later 15th cent. title 'Reuelaciones Brigitte' is on fol. v, which is a parchment leaf containing a mutilated part of a long Latin official record of a case which came before the ecclesiastical court at Constance relating to the Augustinian monastery of st. Antony in the diocese of Vienne (1st half of 15th cent. ?).
Provenance and Acquisition
'constat John Rolygh (?)', fol. 113, 15th century (MLGB) (read in the Summary Catalogue as Rolyn, Rolynh, or Rolynntes; by C.-G. Undhagen as Rolynns).
Perhaps at Syon Abbey - see MLGB: 'The second folio agrees with the copy listed in Betson's catalogue, but there is no other evidence to tie the book to Syon. There is an English ownership inscription at the end of the book for John Rolygh, and yet the donor to Syon was Thomas Fishbourn, who died in 1428. 'The balance of probability is perhaps against this book's having been at Syon' (Gillespie, Syon Abbey, p. 241).'
Presented by sir Walter Cope in 1602.
