This is an edition of three sections of the manuscript: the long couplet version of T1tus and Vespasian; the Temporale Old Testament, Fifteen Tokens before the Day of Judgment, and the prologue to the Concepcio Marie, all from the South English Legendary; and finally the Pilgrimages of the Holy Land. Of these, only portions of the South English Legendary material have been printed from this manuscript. Titus and Vespasian is given the most detailed study, with a more thorough study of the sources of the poem than has appeared before, and with an examination of the language of the author and of the scribe. The transcription is accompanied by full critical notes and a comprehensive glossary of the words in the poem, followed by glossaries of personal and place names. The South English Legendary material is provided with an introduction mainly concerning the sources of the Old Testament and the Fifteen Tokens. and with notes on textual difficulties. There are glossaries of personal and place names. For the Pilgrimages of the Holy Land, again there is a study of sources; the text is accompanied by notes on textual difficulties; there follows a glossary of personal and place names. A bibliography relating to all of the above completes the study. Finally, there are two appendices; these contain items discussed in detail as sources of Titus and Vespasian and not available in print elsewhere. One is the South English Legendary poem The Harrowing of Hell and Destruction of Jerusalem from MS B.6. of St. John's College, Cambridge. The other is that portion of the Harley MS 495 Vindicta Salvatoris not previously printed.
