Origin and Provenance

Written in all probability in Africa. Found ca 1730 in the Castle of the Bishop of Trent. The Dublin leaf was separated after 1762 and was bought in Dublin before 1847; the London leaf was presented to F. Hervey, Bishop of Derry, ca. 1771, and bought by the British Museum from Capt. Luttrell Byrom in 1921. The main MS was taken to Vienna after 1800, and was returned to Trento in 1919. It has recently been repaired in the Vatican.
