Old English Homilies from MS. Bodley 343 synopsis

The edition offers seven ancient English sermons from the library of Ms Bodley 343. This manuscript was written in the late 12th century, but the edited sermons here were all more than a century old. They are all unique to Bodley 343, and have not been edited since the 1909 edition of A.O.

Balfour (EETS OS 137), which provided text and translation only. Four of the sermons are by AElfric, three unknown.

The edition includes a general introduction discussing the composition of Baudela 343 and its relation to the different transport lines that can be identified in ancient English manuscripts. It also discusses the language of sermons, which are particularly important because of their transitional nature.

Each sermon precedes a separate introduction describing its background, contents, and relationship to sources and analogues. Latin sources are printed under text and a glossary covering all sermons is provided..
