Antonia Gransden has identified the scribe of this manuscript in six other manuscripts from Bury St Edmunds and suggested that he was a monk of the abbey: A. Gransden, A history of the Abbey of Bury St Edmunds, 1257–1301 : Simon of Luton and John of Northwold (2015), p. 283.
Red leather on boards, clasps etc. lost, injured, 14th cent. English work.
Provenance and Acquisition
Bury St Edmunds, Benedictine abbey: ex libris and pressmark, 'Postilla super Lucam: Sancti Edmundi . B. 252,' 14th cent.
Perhaps to be identified with a manuscript formerly at Pembroke College, Cambridge, listed in Thomas James, Ecloga, no. 156 ('Postilla super Lucam. Habentes pontificem'), and therefore one of the Bury manuscripts given to Pembroke by William Smart of Ipswich (Summary Catalogue; M. R. James, The abbey of S. Edmund at Bury (1895), pp. 11, 16) .
It was probably received by the Bodleian in 1613–20.
