Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This text, part of the recent discovered collection of texts, provides the bases of a complete reconsideration of the religious bases of Anglo-Saxon Christianity....Highly recommended." The Reader's Review

"...represents a significant advance in the understanding of earlier Anglo-Saxon culture and may serve as examples of creative scholarship and models for future work in an area of study it has opened for all." Paul E. Szarmach, Journal of Religion

"Jane Stevenson has performed a genuine service for medieval studies by making available in an exemplary fashion a hitherto little-known work of an undeniably odd sort while at the same time establishing in a broad context both the work's important and, almost certainly, its authorship. Stevenson's presentation is almost beyond praise." Richard W. Pfaff, Speculum
