Extent: 1.0 Volumes
Scope and Contents: This commonplace book (100 pages, many of which are blank) belonged to Thomas Lamplugh, Archbishop of York, likely between 1642 and 1678. The contents, primarily in Latin, largely consist of oratories and notes about religion and other subjects, often delivered at or otherwise mentioning "Oxon." Some later entries, such as a copied letter from the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Duke of York (21 February 1678), are in English. The volume includes poetry signed by Lamplugh, including one poem about his wife Katherine.
