Bede's Commentary on the Catholic Epistles:
Begins (1, 1 recto lines 1-3): INCIPIT PROLOGVS VENERABILIS BEDE PRESBITERI . | SVPER . VII . CANONICAS EPISTOLAS . [rubric] | I [blue and green initial with gestures] ACOBVS . PETRVS . IOHANNES . iudas septem epistolas edi- = Migne, 93. 9.
Ends (15, 4 recto lines 20-22): secula seculorum. Amen. | EXPLICIT EXPOSITIO BEDE PRESBITERI . IN EPISTOLA | IVDE APOSTOLI. = Migne, 93. 130.
Remarks: On 1, 1 recto in a XVII. Cent. hand: Henricj Spelman Lib.
On 15, 4 verso in an early XV. Cent. hand are 16 lines of quotation, beginning: De uita sancti Thome martiris hec lex capitula sumpta sunt | Animadvertit uir sanctus hoc esse studium regis | ut ecclesie libertas in ius regni redigeretur. Et ut palam and ending: Quod laici. seu rex. seu alii tractent causas de decimis | uel ecclesiis.
These lines are diagonally crossed out, and in the same coloured ink is written in a nearly contemporary hand: Thomas peckam filius praxatoris anten eutus (?)
The autograph on 1, 1 recto is probably that of Sir Henry Spelman (1564?-1641), the historian and antiquary. See Dict. Nat. Biog. liii. 328.
