Summary

Main text of manuscript is s. xii copy of Cassian's Collations, written in England. On the last three leaves of the final quire, glossaries are added with the lemmata in Latin. Some of the glosses in Latin, some in French and some in English. Ker judges the English glosses to be in two hands, and argues that the manuscript is from Buildwas Abbey (1957, p. 380).
