MS. Bodl. 267
Summary Catalogue no.: 2128
The title is erased, because the (twenty-two) sermons run through the whole of the prophecy without division into books. A prologue and a note from Origen precede.
The second part (Saturday before Easter to Advent) of the Homiliarius de Tempore compiled by Paulus Diaconus with considerable variations. The chief authors of the forty-two sermons, of which a list is printed in the Old Catalogue of 1697, are Bede and Augustine. After fol. 160 a leaf or more may be wanting. The two parts of this MS. may be regarded as distinct, but the handwriting is identical in both.
Good initials. (Pächt and Alexander iii. 189)
Rough white leather on boards, clasps lost, perhaps 14th cent. English work.
