Peter Comestor (d. 1178). 
Historia scholastica
[Switzerland], 1466. (BRMS 93)

Peter Comestor’s Historia scholastica is a continuous biblical history from Genesis through the Acts of the Apostles, omitting the non-historical books of the Bible, and filling gaps in the scriptural narrative with explanations provided by the Church Fathers. Bridwell Library’s manuscript of the Historia scholastica is one of many that were expanded with commentaries. Where necessary, the scribe divided the column into two and inserted the corresponding commentary, framed in red or brown ink.
