This manuscript (formerly AEF, Grosses de Marsens, n° 64) consists of three different parts: the Martyrology of Usuard (ff. 1r-77r), the Regula S. Augustini (Regula tertia without the Ordo monasterii; ff. 77v-83r) and the Necrologium monasterii Humilismontis (ff. 83v-113v). The original and oldest part of the necrology is by the same scribe as the rest of the manuscript, which can be dated to 1338 by means of the colophon at the end of the Rule of St. Augustine (fol. 81r): "Hic liber est abbacie Humilismontis Premonstratensis ordinis Lausannensis dyocesis scriptus in eadem abbatia anno Domini Mo CCCo XXXVIIIo mense iulio”. The necrology was later completed by various hands that registered donations for annual Masses for the deceased (for members of the abbey as well as for laypeople). The pagination from 1-61 was done in ink by Jean Gremaud, presumably at the same time that he made the copy held in the StAF (State Archives of Fribourg, Gremaud collection, vol. 36, fol. 304-307). According to an ownership note on folio 1r, in 1660 the manuscript was the property of the Jesuit Collège Saint-Michel in Fribourg.
