Ralph of Diceto (d. 1202) gained an education in Paris, and became a dean of St. Paul's Cathedral in 1180. He wrote two historical works covering his lifetime, both contained in this manuscript, which was owned by St. Albans abbey in the Middle Ages. The notes in the lower right corner of this page, the drawing half-way down the right margin, the caption in red that accompanies the drawing, are similar in style of the handwriting and drawings of Matthew Paris, who wrote and illustrated a number of manuscripts at St. Albans in the mid 13th century.
