Summary

The manuscript contains an excerpt from Amalarius, Liber officialis(III.i) and a Pontifical. The preface to Amalarius is in Old English (pp. iii-iv, 1). Page iii is abraded and difficult to read.

The text was made for use at Christ Church, Canterbury, though in a hand associated with St Augustine's (James via Parker on the Web). A note on fol. 3 indicates it was at Ely in the later medieval period.
