TitleDECRETALES NOVAE
DateLate 13th century
DescriptionOn i a in the proper xvth cent. hand is:
In hoc vol. cont. quinque libri decretalium.

At the end (xiii late) is Liber Radulfi tuprest de West. precio duarum marc'.

On the flyleaf at end are various scribbles (xv): a fragment of music, a collect:
Omn. semp. deus qui diuina Gabrielis salutacione, and one or two verses:
Si non (vis) calui fugias consorcia calui
Si bene vis legere velis ante legenda videre
Nam leuius legit qui prius ante vidit
Ille non amat iesum qui fert ad prelia iesam.

On i b is the beginning of an index of subjects (xiii late).

Decretales nouae. No title or initial. Addressed to Bologna University. Gloss
begins: In huius libri principio quinque sunt precipue prenotanda
The gloss is considerably later than the text. It is in several hands. At f. 49
(quire 5) it ceases for a time.

Lib. II. f. 65. 120b blank.

Lib. III. 121 ending imperfectly 178b.

The whole of Lib. IV seems to be wanting.

Lib. V begins imperfectly f. 179. It is glossed.
Ends 228b: homagium compellatur. Expl. lib. quintus.
Gloss ends imperfectly:
Sed pone quod nullus reperitur ydoneus in monasterio sancti bret. dum uacat
monasterium.
