Provenance
Provenance The manuscript with the Catalogus episcoporum was made in or shortly after 1342 by a canon from the chapter of St Martin (Domkapittel). In the 14th and 15th century it was in the possession of other canons who added new information. After the Reformation the manuscript came in the possession of Van Ohr, canon of the chapter of Paderborn. During the 17th century it was included in the library of the Elector of Hanover, and afterwards in the State Archive of Hanover. In 1941 the manuscript was part of an exchange of archival material between the archival institutes of Nazi-Germany and the Netherlands. The manuscript was placed in the archives of the bishops of Utrecht, though it would have been better if it would have been placed in the archive of the chapter of St Martin. Carasso-Kok (nr. 124) mistakenly mentions that the manuscript got lost in Hanover in 1943.

Short summary of the contents The Catalogus episcoprum Ultrajectinorum contains an overview of the most important deeds of the bishops of Utrecht from Willibrord (695-739) until bishop Jan van Arkel (1342-1364). A lot of the history of Utrecht is intermingled with the history of the county of Holland and the wars the bishops fought with the counts of Holland.

Specification Jamar and Van Kalveen argue that the list of names was ceated shortly after 1393, despite the fact that also Willem van Oostervant (r. 1404-1417) by the same hand is mentioned. A closer inspection learned that his name was a later addition, added shortly after the beginning of his reign.
