Четыре евангелия {2184}
Four Gospels
There is a close connection between this book and other manuscripts from Echternach (see Boeckler, pp.44-45), e.g. Paris, BN, lat. 10438 and British Library MS Egerton 608.
The scribe responsible for copying f. 26 to the end, Ruotpertus, is also found in Luxembourg 246 (where he is named) and Paris, BN, lat. 9586, and is known to have worked in the time of abbot Regimbert, between 1051 and 1081 (see Nordenfalk; info. from Gullick).
The original decorated endpaper (f. 198) used to be an interleaf of the beginning of St Luke but is now bound upside down and reversed recto and verso, and f. 199 was probably originally placed before f. 67 (see [3123 p. 44 note 11]).
Acquired by Robert Harley, 1st Earl of Oxford (d. 1724) or his son Edward Harley (d. 1741), 2nd Earl of Oxford.

Sold together with the Harleian manuscripts by the Countess of Oxford (d. 1755), widow of Sir Edward Harley, 2nd Earl of Oxford, and their daughter, the Duchess of Portland, under the Act of Parliament which also established the British Museum, 1753.
