This volume marks three decades of this journal's life as a premier journal in the field of Anglo-Saxon studies. Lapidge (U. of Notre Dame) heads a team of international scholars examining such aspects of Anglo-Saxon culture as place-name evidence for the lost Old English word for fallow deer; King Alfred the Great's illnesses; the contexts of selected medieval manuscripts; and Junius's transcriptions of the OE poem . Particularly noteworthy features are a new assessment of St. Boniface's correspondence, and a new reading of gender and voice in Prudentius' . Includes illustrations, a comprehensive bibliography of Anglo-Saxon studies' publications for the year 2000, and the cumulative index for volumes 26-30. Annotation c.
