    An epitome of Gregory the Great's lengthy commentary on the Book of Job, Moralia in Iob. This abbreviated version is attributed to the 7th-century Irish theologian Laidcenn mac Baíth Bannaig, abbot of Clúain Fertae Mo Lua (Clonfertmulloe), and may have been brought to mainland Europe by Irish peregrini. The work is now extant in a dozen continental manuscripts.
