CCCC MS 198
Manuscript Title:
Old English Homilies, mostly by Ælfric
Origin Date:
x-xi
Material:
Vellum
Language:
Old English and Latin.
Dimensions:
10.6 x 7.2
Provenance:
From Worcester: see below., The book is copiously glossed in Latin throughout, and chiefly by the same curious tremulous hand which has annotated MS 12 and MS 178. This must mean that in cent. xii the three books MS 12, MS 178 and MS 198 were in the same monastery. That the monastery in question was Worcester admits of no doubt. See on MS 12. The same hand appears in MSS. at Oxford which are clearly from Worcester.
