Two inscriptions on the last page (middle and bottom), state that the book was made by Frei António Paiz from Coimbra in 1547 and illuminated, in the same year, by Frei Simão from the Convento de Nossa Senhora do Espinheiro (Évora).


It is probably the second part of the book LC 3 (Gradual; from Advent up to Lent), in the Museum of Alberto Sampaio, in Guimarães. LC 3 was made in the same date, by both the same copyist and illuminator. These are the only books to share the same copyist and illuminator. For the other Hieronymite books in the Museu of Alberto Sampaio, the illuminator is Frei Jorge from Santarém.
