about

This new edition presents three odes to saints in alliterative and stanzaic form, composed in the north and east Midlands around 1400. The hymns address St Katherine of Alexandria (from Bodley Rolls 22), St John the Evangelist (Lincoln Cathedral Library MS91), and St John the Baptist (BritishLibrary, MS Additional 39574). The edition contains a full account of extensive recent scholarship on the Middle English alliterative verse tradition, as well as the hymns' hagiographical and historical context.
