Part of SL266?


Described in the Babson catalogue (p. 197) as 'draft notes on the Athanasian Creed' and possibly part of SL266. Most if not all of SL266, however, is Ms. **N563M3 P222 in the Clark Library, Los Angeles, and is in English. This document is certainly related to the Clark manuscript, and includes Latin versions of some English passages in the latter, but is probably not part of the same original bundle. It considers Athanasian doctrines abstractly, without discussing the exact wording of the Athanasian Creed itself (as Newton does in Yahuda Ms. 15.1).
