Description

Made up of four manuscripts, all originally separate, consisting of the Dogma laicorum of Reginald, cannon of Shede; a sermon book of Philip, vicar of Wycombe; the Constitutions of Grosseteste; and the Physiologus.

Manuscript 4 (folios 114-123) is a copy of the Physiologus (B version), beginning "Incipit phisialogus liber bestiarum siue uolucrum siue uermium ... Filium suum Iudam dicebat catulus leonis Iuda filius meus phisialogus dicit tres naturas habere leonem"; ending "...in operibus bonis perseuerauerint transit gehannam ignis ardentis et non tangit eum flamma". No illustrations; rubrics at section headings.
