Custodial History

There is no evidence that it belonged to Bede, but apparently he did use it. It may have been brought to England in 669 by Theodore of Tarsus, the Gk. abp. of Canterbury. In that case it left England before very long, as it contains continental writing of later date than Bede. On fol. 226v Prof. Lake has pointed out some part of a sentence written with a stilus in Latin majuscules: they might very well be written at Canterbury in the late 7th century.
