Title: An Unedited Old English Homily in MS. Cambridge, U.L. Ii I33
Author: Murfin, Kathleen Much
Degree: Master of Arts thesis
Abstract: This thesis is an attempt to establish an authoritative text for a previously unedited anonymous Old English homily, with a parallel re-creation of a text for the probable source. The untitled homily is probably late tenth or early eleventh century, copied in the late twelfth century into a collection of Aelfrician sermons. It is a translation of a lost version of a Latin Sermon of Pseudo-Isidore, based in turn on three sermons of Pseudo-Augustine Sources and analogues are traced and discussed. A fairly literal translation into Modern English is included. This homily may be useful to lexicographers for several early appearances of Middle English words and a few unusual Old English spellings or compounds.
