Of the writings of Peter Lombard (born in Lombardy c. 1100, died as archbishop of Paris in 1160) the most famous was his Sentences, a systematic compendium of theology in four books. This copy was owned by the Benedictine abbey of Sts. Peter, Paul, and Oswald, at Bardney (about 10 miles east of Lincoln) in the Middle Ages. The long inscription on this page reveals much about the history of this manuscript: it belonged to Roger [de Fuldon], Archdeacon of Lincoln (c. 1258-1276), who bought it from Galfridus, brother of the vicar of North Elkington [about 5 miles north-east of Louthe]. The last two lines, added between 1266 and 1276, record Roger's gift of the manuscript to 'God, St. Oswald, the abbot, and the convent of Bardney'.
