Abstract:
This Edition and Study of the Acts of the Apostles was undertaken with a view to throwing some fresh light on the problems, linguistic and other, raised by the Anglo-Norman Bible. Although quite often mentioned in books dealing with mediaeval biblical translations, this version had not been studied closely in any completed work, and yet seemed to deserve attention. The existence in Paris of two manuscripts, B.N. fr. 1 and 9562, containing Acts in this, version, at once indicated this section for study, since it restricted the main task of research on the original manuscripts to a single place, while yet providing two manuscripts for comparison.
