This manuscript gathers together several devotional and moralising writings, in Latin, English, and French. It was probably made for churchmen at the Cathedral, Norwich. It may have been useful to them in composing sermons and teaching as well as for as an aid to personal prayer or a worthy pastime. This page of random scribbles presents valuable information for knowledge of the book's origin. The inscription 'C.X' is the pressmark of Norwich Cathedral Library, which documents its position in the library during the middle ages.
