This manuscript contains the Additiones ad postillam Nicolai de Lyra by Paulus Burgensis, also called Paulus de Santa Maria, a Spanish Jew who converted to Catholicism and became bishop, chancellor and exegete. The manuscript was produced in the same workshop as codex Ms. 6a and Ms. 6b, probably in Southwestern Germany during the second third of the 15th century. It is mentioned in the inventory of Prince-Bishop Philipp von Gundelsheim (1487-1553). According to a note on f. 1r, it was owned by the Jesuit College of Porrentruy in the 18th century. In the 19th century, it became the property of the Collège de Porrentruy, after which it became part of the collection of the Library of the Canton of Jura.
