Can I take a glass baking dish from the fridge and put it in a hot oven?

I have a glass baking dish my husband put together a meatloaf in it last night and put it in the fridge. Can I put it right in the hot oven? I think no so I have had it sitting on the kitchen table most of the dish is warmer but the bottom is still a little cold not as cold as it was but cold. I'm scared to put it in there. I have no idea who it's made by.

Mine are (British/European) Pyrex, which is borosilicate and has better thermal properties than US Pyrex.

It would almost certainly be OK, but to be on the safe side I'd put it on a room temperature baking sheet (ideally quite a thick one) before puttin it in the oven. This will avoid the thermal stress caused by the bars of the shelf. Note that the difference between room temperature and fridge temperature is smaller than the difference between the coolest and hottest ovens you'd cook in.
