The words about Paulinus in art. 76, '7 he ... undorfeng þisne biscopstol 7 her on þurhwunode oð his liues ende; wearð þa her bebyrged 7 her gyt aligð', show that the manuscripts were at Rochester in s. xi: cf. Sisam 1931, 11. They may be identified probably with the 'Sermonalia anglica in duobus uoluminibus' in the twelfth-century Rochester catalgoue in no. 373 (pr. Arch. Cant. vi (1866), 127). The linguistic forms of arts. 78, 79 are South-Eastern. Joscelyn's note in no. 48 'Est sermo 13 in libro M. bower' (i.e. William or Robert Bowier) may perhaps refer to Bodley 342, but will not fit any other extant manuscript: cf. art. 45. Given to the Bodelian by Sir Walter Cope in 1602: the numbers '89' (MS. 342, f. ii) and '90' (MS. 340, f. ii) are Cope's. Wanley, pp. 1, 9.
