Origin: 12th century, third quarter (before 1161 or 1173 (?)) ; English, Canterbury, Christ Church

Provenance and Acquisition

Feasts of the translation of St Edward (instituted 1161) and of Thomas Becket (canonized 1173) have been added, suggesting the original entries were made before these dates.

'Dedicatio ecclesie Christi Cant.', 4 May, deleted, but other entries confirm the provenance (see Summary Catalogue).

Referenced in 1884.
