Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the history of Gloss production and ownership. The availability of evidence is very variable for different stages in the life of the Gloss, and the author is aware that manuscript production in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, for example, has been left almost unmentioned. The chapter surveys a lot of time and geography, and of necessity relies very heavily on what other scholars have discovered. Some evidence comes from extant manuscripts; some from surviving book lists and catalogues. The author have divided the material into chronological phases of production, but a closer study of areas other than Paris and northern France would show that each has its own, different pattern. This is because the Gloss's production history is intimately linked with the history of its use-an issue that is often forgotten or neglected by scholars.

Keywords: extant manuscripts; Gloss production; northern France; Paris
