Contents

The following is a list of end papers and bindings found among the Durham Cathedral archives. It is in two sections: the first being a list of fragments which were used as covers for Receiver's and Treasurer's Books of the 16th century, and the second being a list of fragments which were used as covers or found in the bindings during re-binding this century.
The manuscripts which were broken up to make these covers and strengthen the bindings were written at various dates between the 12th and 15th centuries. Most of them were service books or books of Canon Law but copies of works by early Medieval writers such as Rufinus, Isidore of Seville and Smaragdus were also used, mainly for the Receiver's and Treasurer's Books. In some cases substantial parts of the original manuscript can be reconstituted. In addition to manuscript books there are a few deeds and notarial instruments.
In the first section (Nos. 1-16) the fragments are arranged according to subject matter, different parts of the same manuscript being grouped under one heading. Scriptual works come first followed by early medieval authors, sermons and books of canon law, and finally an Inspeximus. A similar arrangement was originally planned for the second section (Nos. 17 onwards), beginning with fragments from liturgical works, and continued by works of canon law, treatises and legal documents. However, as further fragments have come to light since this section of the list was completed, they have been added at the end.
