f. 427, the colophon written by the scribe, G. de Fécamp.  That G. used Fécamp as his surname surely indicates that he was no longer in Fécamp when he wrote this book, but it could well mean that he had been a monk at the Benedictine Abbey there at one time.  G's script and his illuminator's painted initials are similar to what is found in books owned by the Benedictine Abbey of Jumièges, another Norman monastery, and by the Cathedral of Rouen, and the wording of G's colophon suggests that he did the work on this bible at the Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Pierre-sur-Dives.  

Colophon

Put down your hand, o scribe! This book is finished, Flowers from the countryside for  the reader of G of Fécamp May G have perpetual light. (Now) close the volume. May this which you have written give you the joys of Christ. The author of this scripture, with a lame leg G of  Fécamp,  finished it in the fourth year At St. Pierre-sur-Dives. You can trust this meter. I offer you these truths in the chamber of the cantor. The modest abbot James, an honest man, ordered a Bible the pious and honorable man. This have I written, In the year one thousand, two hundred and seventy nine This is written, I give this good Bible of God.
