Codicology:Vellum, 233 x 170 mm (9.2 x 6.8 in.), ff. 112 + 4,
30 lines to a page. Cent. xiii, apparently in
the same hand as MS 222: the flyleaves belonging to it are
in that volume.
3 flyleaves, I8-XV8, 1 flyleaf.
Additions:The flyleaves are from a MS. of sermons (?) in double columns. The name
is scribbled on the flyleaf; no doubt in consequence of some confusion with MS 237.
Marginal references to authorities are given in a hand of cent.
xiii: noteworthy is one which occurs several times,
“philo in libro
as a ref. to the Wisdom of Solomon.
Provenance:The text is evidently the Liber de penitentia Magdalenae of which the flyleaves
are in MS 222. This volume therefore is also from Christ Church, Canterbury. No title is given.
The tract is ascribed by Bale and Tanner to Simon Langton, but
by Balliol MS. 152, by Boston of
Bury, and also by Bale, to Stephen Langton.
