Origin and Provenance

Written at Chelles near Paris. The MS of which this leaf formed a part belongs to a group connected with North-East France (see CLA 2.105). In the upper margin of the recto of our leaf is the entry CCLXXXIII (saec. XII–XIII)—probably an early shelf-mark of MS Gonville and Caius 153 (203), containing a metrical version of Ælred of Rievaulx's Life of Edward the Confessor, saec. XII–XIII.
