This manuscript, which belonged to the cathedral priory of St Andrew, Rochester, has copies of St Augustine's 'Confessions' and 'On Heresies' followed by a list of names including the sovereigns of England from William I to Matilda, archbishops of Canterbury from Lanfranc to Ralph (1114-1122), bishops Gundulf and Ernulf of Rochester and abbots and bishops from the Continent, Bury St Edmunds, Westminster and Glastonbury. It is believed that the names were of persons commemorated in the daily prayer services at Rochester.
