About this title

Synopsis:

This 1890 glossary is an edition of the text of MS. 144 in the library of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, by scholar Jan Hendrik Hessels (1836-1926). Hessels was simultaneously producing a multi-volume edition of the archives of the Dutch Church in London, published between 1887 and 1897, and also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. This was the first edition of the MS in its entirety, though three shorter versions had been produced in 1857 and the 1880s. The glossary comprises two parts: an interpretation of Hebrew and Greek names, and a Latin-Old English glossary. Hessels' thorough introduction describes the manuscript, outlines his methodology and provides extensive tables of the 'organic changes' in the text that he takes great care to categorise and explain. M. R. James describes this work as 'edited...with the greatest care and completeness', and it is much sought after by scholars today.

Book Description:

A significant contribution to the study of medieval history and Old English, Hessels' work provides a thorough introduction to the text as he seeks to aid student and scholar alike. His tables, taxonomy and indices form an apparatus that elucidates the text and contributes to this edition's status as 'definitive'.
