Description
  • This 9th-century manuscript contains De Nuptiis et Concupiscentia ad Valerium (On Marriage and Lust to Valerius) and Contra Julianum (Against Julianus) by St Augustine of Hippo (b. 354, d. 430). The manuscript originates from France, but was in England by the late 11th century, when it served as an exemplar for Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Bodley 145 and Salisbury Cathedral MS 138 (see Ker, English Manuscripts (1960), pp. 12-13, 54, 57). It was at the Benedictine abbey of St Mary the Virgin and St Modwenna at Burton-on-Trent in Staffordshire in the late 12th century, when a monk added an inventory of the abbey’s library on f. 157v. Contents: ff. 1r-36r: Augustine of Hippo, De Nuptiis et Concupiscentia . ff. 36r-157v: Augustine of Hippo, Contra Julianum . The manuscript contains two additions:f. 157v: An inventory of books at the Benedictine abbey of Burton-on-Trent, added in a 12th-century script, beginning ‘Hos habet libros ecclesia Burtone’. f. 158v: A prayer invoking the Seven Sleepers to benefit the soul of a deceased, added in a 12th-century script, beginning: ‘In nomine sancte et individue trinitatis . in monte celio. ibi requiescunt septem sancti dormiente'.[f. 158r is blank]. Decoration:Large and small simple initials in brown ink; display script (rustic and uncial initials) in brown ink; red ink (oxidized) has been added to both initials and display script. Paraph markers in red (ff. 2v-3r). A human figure in brown ink has been added to the margin of f. 134r.
