|Origin and Provenance||
Written at Corbie or some neighbouring centre in North France. Nothing is known of the history of the manuscript till it was acquired by President Bouhier of Dijon ca. 1720: 'Codex MS Bibliothecae Buherianae C. 15 MDCCXXI' stands on the front fly-leaf. His library was bought by the abbey of Clairvaux, whence our manuscript passed into the municipal library of Troyes. It was one of the 320 manuscripts given by Troyes to the University of Montpellier around the year 1804.
