Description Updates

Any new exciting findings will initially be posted here on the blog before being updated in the database, so it is well worth checking in here before you investigate the Project’s main resources.  Yesterday I identified the scribe of Cambridge Corpus Christi MS. 182 as the main scribe of Harvard MS. 587 (a chap who signs himself ’Ryther Scriptor’), so these descriptions are currently under revision- this identification potentially has implications for Harvard 587’s Matheson grouping- although there are many textual and orthographic differences between the texts copied by the scribe, it is possible that the Harvard text is, like CCC MS. 182,  an EV-1419. This has been suggested to me by a comparison with the variant Henry II/ Becket heading in both texts (click the link).  The variant heading in Harvard MS. Eng. 587 occurs in the Corpus Christi MS., and I have checked another EV-1419, Princeton MS. Garret 150, where the heading also occurs.  Further checks are likely to lead to reclassification.

If you have any insights or queries regarding any updates, please reply via the blog.
