Two degree theses, by John Reynolds headed:

  2. Fol. 9. 'Vltima praelectio, de fidei controversiis': beg. 'Egressos ex Ægypto filios Israelis'

A nearly contemporary note on fol. 1 states, 'D. Rainolds his first solemne lecture for this degree. Seeke out the rest. Perhaps the Archbishop hath them among the rest.'
