Placeholder Show Content


The main contents of CCCC MS 30 are commentaries on books of the Old Testament by the Augustinian canon, Andrew of Saint-Victor (c. 1110-75). Although English, he entered the Parisian abbey of Saint-Victor, but returned to England as abbot of Wigmore 1147-55 and again 1161-3, returning to Paris for the period 1155-61. This manuscript is one of the very few which contain these commentaries. In addition to Andrew's works, the book contains Bede's commentary on Proverbs and Jerome's on Ecclesiastes.

Provenance Perhaps from Coggeshall Priory in Essex. On the middle of f. iir in large red letters is a title not unlike those which occur in other Coggeshall books: ¶ Historica expositio Andree super Eptaticum et super Regum et super Paralipomenon et super parabolas et Ecclesiasten ¶ Et Beda super parabolas ¶ Jeronimus super ecclesiasten ¶ Andreas super xii prophetas. But on the same page in black ink xv or xvi is a scratched out mark B. 63. Such a mark sometimes points to Norwich.
