This calendar was apparently written for use at Tewkesbury Abbey: half-way down the right hand column in red is the entry 'Dedicatio eccle theok.', which is an abbreviation of the Latin for 'The dedication of the church of Tewkesbury' (18 June). Two lines lower down is an added entry mentioning 'theokesbury' in full. At the top of the column is added 'O. Rog. Abb': the obit of Abbot Roger. Several other abbots are commemorated in these two months
