The epistles of st. Paul with glosses, Written in the mid-13th century in England
The epistles of st. Paul with glosses, some of which are as in the glossa interlinearis and glossa ordinaria, the prologue of st. Jerome, beg. 'Primum queritur', and a second prologue, beg. 'Romani sunt' (fol. 1). The initial 'P' of the text is a good example of pen and ink work (fol. 4). Dr. Barlow's note of the contents is now on the inner front cover.
