Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This volume is the first of three presenting an edition of the 'Vie de seint Clement' (Dean no. 517; cf. Vising no. 110), an anonymous early thirteenth-century Anglo-Norman text which combines into a single narrative versions of three Latin sources: the Pseudo-Clementine 'Recognitiones' and 'Epistula Clementis ad Iacobum', both translated by Rufinus of Aquileia, and the 'Passio sanctorum apostolorum Petri et Pauli', attributed to Pseudo-Marcellus. The 'Vie de seint Clement' is extant in one manuscript only, Cambridge Trinity College R.3.46 (622), ff. 122-356, and was copied towards the middle of the thirteenth century. Although the text is incomplete, since the final part of the 'Passio' is omitted, it comprises little short of 15000 lines.
