Anglo-Saxon Chronicle 6 MS D

Edited by G.P. Cubbin

  • Description
  • Reviews
New evidence for the relationship between the manuscripts of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle.
Ranks among the best work on the vernacular texts undertaken this century. In its clarity of thought and expression it is a model to emulate. MEDIUM AEVUM

G.P. Cubbin's important introduction accompanying this editionargues for MS D having been created in about 1060 by copying two other Chronicle -manuscripts, thus reducing the number of versions of the Chronicle to three, and simplifying issues of interrelationship. Strong evidence is produced for the work being carriedout in or near Worcester; and another new and unexpected finding is that D itself became the source of other versions of the Chronicle for the mid-eleventh century. Linguistic analysis considers unusual features of the manuscript and supports the new history presented here.

Dr G.P. CUBBIN is Lecturer in German at the University of Cambridge.
