Peter Lombard (born in Lombardy), was a student and then teacher in Paris, where he became archbishop shortly before his death in 1160. He wrote a number of commentaries and theological works in the 1140s-1150s, including this commentary of the New Testament letters of St. Paul, which became a standard text throughout the rest of the Middle Ages. The first page of the text has several added inscription in the upper margin; from left to right they are: a title and a press-mark characteristic of the Benedictine abbey of St. Werburgh, Chester; the ownership note 'Ex monasterio Cestrie' (i.e. from the monastery of Chester); the inventory number in the old Royal library ('No. 1098'); the present pressmark of the British Library ('4. E viij'), and below this the page number in the old catalogue ('p. 58').
