Produced for Abbess Mechtilde de Lechy of Herkenrode (Cottineau I, 1403), diocese of Liège, in 1544: "Anno a partu virgineo millesimo quingentesimo quadragesimo quarto hunc librum conscribi fecit veneabilis domina, domina Mechtildis de Lechy, suo tempore abatissa huius monasterii de Herkenrode." Ownership inscription on f. 165v: "Libero Beate Marie de Herkenrode." Mechtilde was also responsible for the Abbey's stained glass window of the Virgin and St Bernard, resembling the depiction on f. 2r; Archologia, 108 (1986), 198. The MS, with its companion volume, likely remained at Herkenrode until the Abbey's suppression in 1796.

Acquired for the Abbey of Gethsemani before 1935, Abbot Edmond Obrecht's descriptions tipped in on the front pastedowns.
