Summary[edit]

This is folio 73v out of MS. Hatton 30 which is owned by the Bodleian Library in Oxford. The manuscript is dated c. 940-947 according to the catalogue entry. In addition, following comment regarding this folio is provided by the Bodleian Library: Inscription on last page of commentaries on the Apocalypse: "Dunstan the abbot gave orders for the writing of this book". This points to Dunstan who was abbot of Glastonbury Abbey in 940-957. This is possibly the oldest surviving manuscript of this abbey. The other candidate is Auct. F.4.32, also now located at the Bodleian Library.

This image has been taken from [1] and somewhat cropped to get rid of the dark background and the number 48 which is displayed in the lower left corner.
