Collinson -- Priebsch bibliography, by F. Norman -- Introduction -- Letter from Heaven on the observance of the Lord's Day, from the posthumous works of Robert Priebsch, edited by W. E. Collinson and August Closs -- Appendix I. B1 - text of the epistle [in Latin], p. [35]-37 -- From the Introduction: `At some future date the Editors hope to be in a position to proceed tothe publication of Redactions II, III and IV, and to tackle the difficult task of filling up some of the lacunae.' (p. xxiii) -- `Let us now turn to Iceland. There is a Norse poem of the early thirteenth or possibly of the twelfth century, bearing the title `Leidar-visan' (way-pointing), the work of a certain Brandr who was assisted by a priest Runold. It not only shows the same subject matter (Christ's Epistle on the observance of Sunday) in general, but also stands very near LV (LVx) with regard to some thoughts and phrases peculiar to that version (cf. especially the stanza 9).' (p. 15; stanzas 6-12 of the Icelandic text with a parallel English translation follow). `Thereupon the poet proceeds (stanzas 13-35) to describe various events that took place on the Lord's day, dignatio Diei dominici (very much like that in LVx) from the creation of the angels to the day of judgment. This account is followed by an exhortation to love God, by two stanzas containing the name of the poem Leidar-visan, the composer Brandr and the prient Runolf who aided him and finally (st. 45) by a prayer for all Christians.'
