Numeri, Deuteronomium, glo. — Osney, Oxfordshire. Augustinian abbey of St Mary the Virgin.


Provenance: Osney, Oxfordshire. Augustinian abbey of St Mary the Virgin.
Location: Magdalen College, Oxford
Shelfmark: lat. 123
Author/Title: Numeri, Deuteronomium, glo.
Type of evidence: inferred evidence
Notes on evidence:

Magdalen College, lat. 121–132 are a complete collection of glossed books of the Bible collected by John Grene 'Coventriensis' in s. xv med. and all, except perhaps 218, were evidently in the possession of one religious house at an earlier date. Traces of the place-name in 124 and 130 suggest Osney and this is confirmed by the letter-marks and numbers.

The place-name is of four letters, the second s, the first either u or E. Osney seems virtually certain; cf. MS. 124.

'I' (fol. 1r).

['Liber sancte marie de . . . ex dono Richardi de Abbendune']. Inscription on flyleaf recorded by W. D. Macray, Register of Magdalen College, 2. 213, but the flyleaf is now not to be found.

'Tercia pars biblie . . .' (cf. MS. 121) recorded by Coxe, but now lost.

Date: s. xii/xiii
