An ancient Latin manuscript, supposed to have been originally written at Bangor Ireland. The codex, found by Muratori in the Ambrosian Library at Milan, and named by him the “Antiphonary of Bangor” “Antiphonarium Benchorense”was brought to Milan from Bobbio with many other books by Cardinal Federigo Borromeo when he founded the Ambrosian Library in Bobbio, which is situated in a gorge of the Apennines thirty-seven miles north-east of Genoa, was founded by St. Columbanus, a disciple of St. Comgal, founder of the great monastery at Bangor on the south side of Belfast Lough in the county of Down.
