<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript, probably copied in the late 13th or early 14th century, contains the first 44 homilies by the Patriarch of Constantinople, <i>John Chrysostom, <i>In Matthaeum homiliae (1-44)</i></i>. An earlier manuscript, <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-TRINITY-B-00009-00012/1'>Trinity College Cambridge, MS B.9.12</a> contains homilies 45-90, but it not clear whether the manuscript B.8.4 was written in order to complement this collection. Folio 1 is badly damaged and only the inner column of text survives. A bifolium in paper was added in the 16th century to repair the lacuna. As with Trinity College, MS B.9.12, MS B.8.4 was used by Frederick Field for his edition of the homilies (<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='http://solo.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/OXVU1:LSCOP_OX:oxfaleph013442762'>Cambridge 1839</a>; see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='http://dbooks.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/books/PDFs/N11604533.pdf'>vol. 3</a>, p. XVII). The manuscript was bought by the classical scholar Richard Bentley and bequeathed to Trinity College Library after his death.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
