From Anglo-Saxon to early middle English : studies presented to E.G. Stanley( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and Italian and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Anglo-Saxon to Early Middle English brings together eleven papers on aspects of English language and literature from the eighth to the thirteenth century, written in honour of E.G. Stanley, the recently retired Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon at the University of Oxford. The papers, written by eminent scholars from Britain, North America, and Germany, reflect the range of E.G. Stanley's work, examining philology, metre, and literary style. However, the focus of the volume is on the period of rapid change from late Anglo-Saxon to early medieval England, and the contributors consider in detail the ways in which both language and literary forms developed during this time. The volume contains a comprehensive Bibliography of E.G. Stanley's publications, together with an account of his distinguished career
Aelfric's Catholic homilies : introduction, commentary, and glossary by Aelfric( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the third and final volume of the Society's edition of the Catholic Homilies, a set of preaching texts in two series composed in Old English around A.D. 990 for the use of preachers throughout England. Aelfric (monk of Winchester, and then Cerne Abbas and the first abbot of Eynsham) was one of the leading scholars of his time and the foremost prose stylist of the Anglo-Saxon period. The two series of Catholic Homilies together make up the longest extant text in Old English, and are Aelfric's most important work. The text of the Second Series, edited by M.R. Godden, was published in 1979 (S.S. 5), and the text of the First Series, edited by Peter Clemoes, in 1997 (S.S. 17); both volumes included an analysis of the manuscripts of each series and a detailed account of the textual history. This final volume gives an account of the origin, function and dating of the Catholic Homilies and their Latin sources; a detailed commentary on all eighty homilies; and a glossary of all words occuring in the text."--Jacket
The Old English history of the world : an Anglo-Saxon rewriting of Orosius by Paulus Orosius( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orosius rewrote the history of the world from a Christian perspective, which became one of the most widely-read accounts of world history through late antiquity and the Middle Ages and an important influence on much later writing of history. Sometime in the late ninth or early tenth century an Anglo-Saxon scholar embarked on his own translation and adaptation of Orosius's History. This Old English version survives only in two manuscripts of the tenth and eleventh century.--

Contributions to the forty-sixth volume of Anglo-Saxon England focus on aspects of Anglo-Saxon culture and history across a period from the seventh to the eleventh century. The study of a fragment of a tenth-century sacramentary offers new evidence for the role of music in Anglo-Saxon England, while consideration of charter-evidence in both Latin and Old English from Worcester c.870 to 992 sheds fresh light on institutional interaction between the two main languages of Anglo-Saxon England. Two contributions consider Beowulf and its immediate manuscript-context, the first focusing on the spellings of the second scribe, and the next on the later history of the manuscript into the sixteenth century, facilitating its survival to this day. Finally, a detailed study of English landed society before and after the Norman Conquest has resulted in new perspectives on landed wealth in England in 1066 and 1086.
