Manuscript written by Thomas Arthur in 1627 containing a collection of Latin vitae of Irish saints. Thomas Arthur transcribed the lives, apparently from Dublin, Marsh's Library, MS Z 3.1.5, which was lent to him by bishop James Ussher, and was not afraid to modify them as he thought necessary. Some additional items not found in said manuscript are included, including a life of Livinus.

Collection of Irish saints’ Lives in Latin. It is generally taken to be an early copy of Rawlinson B 485 and since the latter is now mutilated in places, fills in a number of important gaps. The order of the Lives has been rearranged to follow the calendar of feast-days.
