Latin treatises, chiefly on the Ecclesiastical Calendar:

  1. Fol. 3v. Bede's treatise de Ratione Temporum
  2. Fol. 62. Short treatises de Computo Ecclesiastico, including Bede de Computo (fol. 62v), Bede de Divisionibus Temporum (fol. 64v), 'de Pascha' (fol. 80v), 'de Sollennitatibus' (fol. 82v), Epistolæ de ratione Paschae (fol. 84)
  3. Fol. 111. List of years from B.C. 152 (Olymp. 157. 1) to A.D. 1421: the notes of events (as distinct from calculations) begin at A.D. 734 continue in one hand till 1075, and largely concern the Benedictine Abbey of the Holy Trinity at Vendome (monasterium Vindocinense): contemporary hands continue the notes, obits, etc. until the battle of Crecy (A.D. 1346)
  4. Fol. 143. A calendar for the year, with explanations, with the dedication of the monastery of Vendome on May 31 in the original hand.
  5. Fol. 147. A genealogy of the Kings of France from Pharamundus to Philip I (1060-1108), continued to Philip II (1180-1223)
  6. Fol. 149. Boethius de Arithmetica, wanting 16 1/2 chapters at the beginning, and all after near the end of chapter 26 in the second book: beg. 'cabit. Hic quoque', ends 'longiores ut sub.'

Miscellaneous notes, tables, and extracts, chiefly connected with the Calendar, occur at fol. 2v, 61v, 101, 132, 165.

A valuable codex written in and for the Benedictine abbey of the Holy Trinity at Vendome, and in its possession till at least the battle of Crecy.
