Note
  • "The collection of ecclesiastical institutes, laws and homilies ... consists of two parts, one ... written about the middle of the eleventh century and the other ... some fifty years earlier. They were certainly bound together by 1580 ... The earlier portion, partly in Anglo-Saxon and partly in Latin, is ... 'a kind of theological commonplace book ... '; the later portion, all in Anglo-Saxon, provides a good copy of the Laws of Cnut and of the legal material that forms their background."
  • "This codex contains Anglo-Saxon law codes and writings related to Wulfstan (d. 1023), bishop of Worcester and archbishop of York.The manuscript includes:ff. 1r-v: early modern table of contents;ff. 2r-v, 178r-180v: early modern index, entitled 'De ordinatione Presbiterii';ff. 3r-57v: Anglo-Saxon law codes I Cnut, II Cnut, II-III Edgar, the law codes of Alfred and of Ine (imperfect), Romscot, and Judex, copied in the 3rd quarter of the 11th century;ff. 58r-69v: completion of the law codes of Alfred and of Ine by John Joscelyn (d. 1603), written in the 2nd half of the 16th century;ff. 70r-177v: Wulfstan of York, Institutes of Polity; Wulfstan of York, Homilies, including Sermo lupi ad Anglos; other additions, including an Easter table, the law codes I Æthelstan, I Edmund (imperfect), III Edgar (imperfect), V Æthelred; a law code beginning 'Godes grið', in the style of Wulfstan of York; VIII Æthelred; excerpts on the role of a bishop, beginning 'Bonus itaque pastor...'
