A manuscript of Ælfrich's Old English homilies, mostly from First Series, written in the first half of the eleventh century. The manuscript may be from Hereford but this is not certain.
It contains a scribble 'sawulf' on p. 61 and a Middle English annotation on p. 408. Ker 1957 dates the scribble 'sawulf' to the first half of the eleventh century but Stokes 2006 says none of the letter forms contraindicate the second half of the eleventh century (DigiPal). The annotation in Middle English is dated to the beginning of the thirteenth century (Ker 1957).
