This volume contains several works composed by St. Fulgentius (468-533), an African bishop. It belonged to the abbey of Lobbes in Belgium, as shown by the fact that it contains at the end a list of the books in the library of the abbey, dated 1049, as well as a 12th-century note at the front recording a number of books which were saved from a fire. By the 15th century, however, the manuscript was at Durham Cathedral, as shown by the library press-mark. This is the start of the list of books at Lobbes Abbey. The rubric starts with the date, 1049, and the list of books starts with two works by Ambrose, then a large number by Bede and Augustine.
