Overview

Taken from the same manuscript as Cynewulf, the Junius 11 poems-Genesis, Exodus, Daniel, and Christ and Satan-comprise  a series of redacted Old English works that have been  traditionally  presented as the work of Bede's Caedmon. Medieval scholars have concluded that the four poems were composed by more than one author and later edited by Junius  in 1655. All of the poems are notable for their Christian  content. Apart from its focus on the Junius 11 manuscript,  this collection of essays is also important as a study of how to read, edit, and define any medieval literary text.
