The 'Pharetra' (Quiver) was probably written by the Franciscan friar Guibert of Tournai (d.1270), although it is often attributed to the more famous contemporary Franciscan, St. Bonaventura (1221-1274). It is a collection of quotations from various authorities, primarily St. Gregory, but also St. Bernard, St. Anselm, and the Venerable Bede, among others. It was probably written as a handy--and portable--summary of their writings, suitable for a mendicant friar to carry around with him. This manuscript has an ownership inscription of Spalding Priory, in Lincolnshire, on a flyleaf. This page contains the end of the first book and the beginning of the second, of the four books into which the text is divided. The text of Book II is preceded by a list of chapters, in which the section on obedience has been emphasised by the addition of a pointing hand, in the upper right-hand margin.
