Belonging to the Augustinian priory of St Mary, Guisborough, this collection of theological writings and sermons would have been read as part of the daily programme of Bible study undertaken by the monks. It would have been a scholar's book, with very little in the way of decoration. On the flyleaf, at least three people have written notes of the book's contents.
