|Origin and Provenance||
Written in Ireland, probably at the monastery of Roscrea, Tipperary. The name Dimma stands over an erasure on foll. 15, 20v, 50; the entire subscription on fol. 74v is a later addition. The MS remained in the same neighbourhood until the beginning of the nineteenth century, when it was acquired by Trinity College.

Script varies greatly: the Gospel of St John is by a different scribe and less cursive than the rest; e with the reversed lower bow is used in ligature. There are later liturgical additions on p. 99, continued on p. 100 (originally blank), on pp. 101–2 (an added leaf), and on p. 103 (the blank recto of the miniature of St John).
