Provenance and Acquisition
Written before 1200: later entry ‘modo hic sumus’ against that year in the paschal cycle. Probably written in 1194. Contemporary notes at the bottom of several pages provide dates which fit only the years 1195 and 1206, and M. V. Taylor argued that the book was used for preaching by a monk other than the author or scribe in the first half of 1195. On fol. 1v. is a paschal cycle of thirty years (1195-1224) which begins ‘Annis triginta. prestum pasca. notaui hic: quibus elapsis. in compoto queratur. Incarnationis dominice. anno mo .co .xco .iiiio. Rex ricardus uenit de alemannia. in media quadragesima.’ Internal evidence suggests the author was a monk of St Werburgh's abbey.
