'St Wulfstan's Homiliary'; England (Worcester), s. xi3/4; additions to s. xiii1

Contents

Summary of Contents: A collection of homilies, mainly by Wulfstan and Ælfric, probably copied for and used by Wulfstan II, bishop of Worcester 1062-95, and probably written to accompany MS. Junius 121. The principle contents are catechetical and moral homilies for any occasion, followed by homilies for Christmas to Pentecost and for saints' days from 1 May to 1 November. The manuscript was bound as two separate volumes by the early thirteenth century; MS. Hatton 113 still retains that binding. The extensive glosses by the so-called 'Tremulous Hand of Worcester' provide a fascinating glimpse of the study of Old English in the thirteenth century.

History

Origin: 11th century, third quarter; additions, through to 13th century, first half ; English, Worcester, cathedral priory

Provenance and Acquisition

Worcester Cathedral. Written at Worcester, probably as companion volumes to MS. Junius 121. The Worcester origin and early provenance is established by the calendar, script and additions by Coleman. (According to William of Malmesbury's Vita Wulfstani, Wulfstan in old age delegated the office of preaching to Coleman ('praedicationis delegabat officium'; ed. Darlington, p. 40)). The manuscript was presumably still at Worcester in the early thirteenth century, when the Tremulous Hand annotated it. In the sixteenth century the inscription ‘Liber Ecclesiæ Wygorn’ was added in the top margin of MS. Hatton 113, fol. ii recto, and subsequently erased. The manuscript was annotated by John Joscelyn and was a source for his Anglo-Saxon glossaries in London, Lambeth Palace 692, fol. 37. Still in Worcester in 1622-3, when catalogued by Patrick Young (Atkins and Ker 1944, nos. 318-319), and in 1638, when referred to (as a Worcester manuscript) in a letter from Ussher to Spelman dated 6th November 1638 (Oxford, Bodleian, Additional C. 301, fol. 48) (Ker 1957, p. 399).

Borrowed by Christopher, Lord Hatton by 1644, when indexed by Dugdale (Oxford, Bodleian, Dugdale 29, fol. iv verso).

Given to the Bodleian by Hatton's son in 1675. Subsequently lent to Dr Thomas Marshall and by him to Franciscus Junius and returned to the Bodleian as part of the Junius collection after his death in 1678. Former shelfmarks MS. Junius 22 and MS. Junius 99.

Physical Description

Form: codex
Support: parchment. Leaves arranged HFFH.
Extent: 1 + 154 + ii + 1. Fols i and 147 are medieval parchment flyleaves; fols 145-46 are inserted paper leaves
Dimensions (leaf): 255 × 158 mm.
Dimensions (written): 200 × 95 mm.
Foliation: i-xi, 1-147

Collation

110, fols ii-xi; 2-188, fols 1-136; 198 3 and 6 are singletons, fols 137-144. Franzen 1998 reports that 'Quire signatures are marked in bottom margin of the first recto of Quires 3-16: ‘p’ (fol. 9), ‘q’ (fol. 17), ‘r’ (fol. 25), ‘s’ (fol. 33), ‘t’ (fol. 41), ‘u’ (fol. 49), ‘x’ (fol. 57), ‘y’ (fol. 65), ‘z’ (fol. 73), ‘&’ (fol. 81), ‘˥’ (fol. 89), ‘w’ (fol. 97), ‘þ’ (fol. 105), ‘’ (fol. 113) (Robinson 1973, p. 450); they are probably a continuation of those in Junius 121, which has ‘a’- ‘n’ on Quires 2-14'.

Layout

Ruled for 23 long lines, with double bounding lines in both margins. Pricking generally visible in the side and top and bottom margins (Franzen 1998, p. 27). Fols 18r-24v have double runs of double pricking holes at left and right margin, unlike the surrounding folios which have double runs of single pricking holes.

Hand(s)

Fols 1-144 were written by one scribe, probably between 1062 and 1070. This scribe also wrote the majority of Hatton 114 and probably Junius 121 (Franzen 1998, p. 28). Another hand made some early additions, including a calendar and computus tables (fol. ii verso- xi recto); this hand also occurs in Hatton 114, Junius 121, and other manuscripts (Franzen 1998). Coleman added notes, running headers and divisions within textual items between 1080 and 1100, and running heads were added by another hand between 1060 and 1080. The Tremulous Hand added glosses; mostly in a later phase of his career as his hand is 'particularly large and trembly', but earlier versions of his hand are also found scattered throughout (Franzen 1998, p. 28). Franzen 1998 (p. 28) notes ‘nearly contemporary additions to the text and glosses are found in several hands … which are often difficult to distinguish’ from those by the Tremulous Hand. Rudolf 2006 provides a detailed discussion of the textual layout and annotations of the copy of Napier XXXI, and a transcription of the main text of this item which follows the manuscript layout and includes its annotations from the second half of the eleventh-century, excluding those by the Tremulous Hand.

Hand 1. Fols 1-144v Worcester type. The shape of the second element of ‘æ’ is influenced by the letter which succeeds it. ‘e’ is round-backed or horned depending on its place in the word and the following letter. The descender of ‘þ’ is notched. Most ‘ascenders’ except that of ‘þ’ are clubbed, but some ascenders have wedged clubs and some are wedged; for example, ‘h’ and ‘b’, in English and Latin. This hand also writes most of Hatton 114 and probably writes Junius 121.

Hand 2. Fols ii v- xi v 'an attractive and unusual hand' (Ker 1957, p. 399). Caroline ‘a’, sometimes with high tail. ‘e’ is almost round-backed. ‘g’ is wide and open with long descender. ‘or’ ligature is not very straight on the line. Also writes: additions to Hatton 114; the margins of Junius 121; Latin texts in CCCC 9; Latin texts in Nero E. i; Latin texts in CCCC 146.

Hand 3, Coleman. Found on fol. 78v signed (in partial cipher) as ‘⟨c⟩plfman’ and unsigned in obits of fols ii- viii, notes on fols 39v-40r and marginalia on fols 70v, 78r, 108v, 128v and 134r Rustic capitals and some minuscule.

Hand 4, the Tremulous Hand makes some alterations to letters, usually vowels, and to some word-divisions. xiii1

Decoration

Rubrics.

Coloured initials.

Fols 1-144v: headings in red rustic capitals, initials green or metallic red, usually alternating, and once blue.

Calendar (fol. iiv): lines, headings and capitals in red apart from one line and one capital in blue.

Fols iiir-viiiv: headings, initials, capitals and some entries in red, green and blue. Capitals sometimes filled with red, green or blue.

Computus tables (fols ixr-xir): lines, headings and initials in red and green, but five large capitals on fol. x verso are blue and only red is used on fol. xi recto.

Table of contents (fol. xiv): numbers, headings, initials and lines in red and green

Binding

Pollard 1975 describes the binding as: '256 x 168 mm. Whittawed sheepskin over oak boards. Sewn on four bands of thong including the head- and tail-bands. The thongs are rather wide (13mm unsplit). Tabs at the head and tail of the spine. Traces of head and pin fastening. The bands enter tunnels and are pegged into grooves entirely on the inside of the boards. Bound (or entirely rebound) possibly at Worcester, about A.D. 1200 more than a hundred years after it was written' (p. 157). Ker (1957, p. 399) notes that ‘Sermones anglice XX can be read on the spine […] where, however, letters have been retouched’.

Accompanying Material

Fols. 145-146 are inserted paper leaves. Fol. 145r contains a list of contents by Dugdale, dated 1644. Fols. 145v-146v are blank.

Physical Description

Hatton 113 and Hatton 114 formed separate volumes by the early thirteenth century, when the table of contents for Hatton 114 was written in the margins of fols 9v-10r (Franzen 1998, p. 35). Quire 2 continues from the end of Hatton 113. Quire 1 has no running headers and is not included in the thirteenth-century table of contents, and Ker (1957, p. 398) notes that it was ‘added at the beginning of MS. 114’. Hatton 114 was therefore not originally in its present order, and Quire 1 was moved to its current position at a later stage; possibly after Hatton 113 and Hatton 114 were separated for binding late in the twelfth- or early thirteenth-century, and some point in the thirteenth century between the writing of the table of contents, which lists the contents from Quire 2 to the end of Quire 30 (not including the leaf added to the end of Quire 30, fol. 247) and the writing of the thirteenth-century title ‘Sermones anglici .XXI.’ on fol. 1r.
Form: codex
Support: Parchment. Fols i, 250 and 251 are modern paper flyleaves. Fols 248-49 are added by Dugdale (see Accompanying Material below).
Dimensions (leaf): 267 × 160 mm.
Dimensions (written): 200 × 94 mm.
Foliation: Fols i + 248 + iv, foliated (i) + 1-97, 97*, 98-250, (251)

Collation

1-248, fols 1-191; 258 + 1 after 8, fols 192-200; 26-2810, fols 201-30; 298 wants 6 and 7, fols 231-36; 3010 + 1 after 10, fols 237-47. 5 and 6 in Quires 26 and 30 and 3 and 6 in Quire 8 are singletons. Franzen reports that 'one catchword, ‘þig’, partly cropped, is visible in the bottom margin of fol. 135v, the end of quire 27' (1998, p. 37).

Layout

Leaves are arranged HFFH. Ruled for 23 long lines. Double bounding lines, right and left. Prickings are usually visible in the side margins and at the top and bottom.

Hand(s)

The main text in fols 9-201 is by one scribe. Fols 201r/9-30r/17 look to be in another hand which also wrote the additions on fols 236r/1-42v/6 and 1r/1-4v/9. Fols 230r/18-35v/23 and 242v/7-46v/1 are in a different hand. A hand which may belong to Hemming wrote fol. 246v/2-23 and three hands wrote fols 4v/10-20, 5r/1-8v/22 and fols 247r/1-47v/6 in the same period. Coleman wrote marginal notes, two hands added running heads and the Tremulous Hand added some glosses.

Hand 1. Fols 9r-201r/6 Worcester type. Items 4-41. The shape of the second element of ‘æ’ is influenced by the letter which succeeds it. ‘e’ is round-backed or horned depending on its place in the word and the following letter. The descender of ‘þ’ is notched. Most ‘ascenders’ except that of ‘þ’ are clubbed, but some ascenders have wedged clubs and some are wedged; for example, on ‘h’ and ‘b’, in English and Latin. The same hand as in Hatton 113 and probably Junius 121.

Hand 2. fols 1r/1-4v/9, 201r/9-30r/17 and 236r/1-42v/6 According to Ker, there is 'perhaps a change of hand' at the beginning of Item 42 (1957, p. 399). This hand then copied Items 43 and 44. Other early additions (Item 1, Item 46 and an Latin item in Hatton 113, fol. iir/1-20) are also by the same hand.

Hand 3. fols 230r/18-235v/23 and 242v/7-246v/1 'An attractive and unusual hand' (Ker 1957, p. 399). Item 45 and part of Item 47. Caroline ‘a’, sometimes with high bow. ‘e’ is almost round-backed. ‘g’ is wide and open with long descender. ‘or’ ligature, is not very straight on the line. Also writes: additions to Hatton 113; the margins of Junius 121; Latin texts in CCCC 9; Latin texts in Nero E. i; Latin texts in CCCC 146

Hand 4. fol. 4v Item 2. s. xi2.

Hand 5. fol. 5r-8v Item 3. s. xi2.

Hand 6. fols 247r-v Item 48. s. xi2.

Hand 7. fols 246v/2-23 Part of Item 47. Possibly the hand of Hemming (Ker 1948, pp. 57, 72). Thickly-written and very upright. The left-hand side of the written area is not parallel to the edge of the membrane (C11 Project). The feet of ‘h’ are vestigial. The ascender of ‘þ’ is wedged. All ‘ascenders’ except that of ‘þ’ are clubbed. Nota The angle of the ‘tironian nota’ is almost 90˚. Also writes: CUL Kk. 3. 18 (Gameson 2005, p. 103); CCCC 146, additions (Gameson 2005, p. 101); CCCC 391 (Gameson 2005, p. 101); Tiberius A. xiii (Gameson 2005, p. 101); Hatton 113 (Gameson 2005, p. 101); Junius 121 (Gameson 2005, p. 101); Harley Ch. 83. A.3 (Gameson 2005, p. 101).

Hand 8 (Coleman). fols 11v, 13v, 25r and 27v. Item 49 Unsigned, rustic capitals. A signature '⟨c⟩plfman' appears in Hatton 113.

Hand 9 (Tremulous Hand). There are several layers of glosses by the Tremulous Hand throughout (Item 50): one in pencil, usually in the margin; one in ink with very small, tidy glosses repeating the pencil glosses over the correct lemmata; one in crayon, usually in the margin but less clear than the pencil layer, and a second ink layer with larger but still reasonably tidy glosses. xiii1

Decoration

Headings are in red metallic rustic capitals.

Franzen reports that 'the first line of a text is also in metallic red; sometimes [...] in rustic capitals filled with green. Initials are metallic red, blue and green, except in the first quire (fols 1-8) where they are red or metallic red' (Franzen 1998, p. 35).

Binding

Rebound in the nineteenth century. Binding leather and very fragile.

Accompanying Material

Fols. 248-9 paper leaves inserted by Dugdale; fol. 248r-v contains an index by Dugdale, dated 1644; fol. 249r-v blank.

History

Provenance

Thirteenth century title 'Sermones anglici .XXI.', fol. 1. Joscelyn wrote a gloss on fol. 18v and marginalia on fols 36v, 42v and 49r, but he did not draw on Hatton 114 for his Anglo-Saxon word lists. Dugdale wrote a table of contents on fol. 248 in 1644. ‘Saxon | Homilies tom: 1’ is written in the upper margin of fol. 1r in the same hand as one which adds titles to other Hatton manuscripts. In the lower margin a different hand has writeen ‘MS. Junius | 22’. This is now crossed out, and ‘Hatton 114’ is written in pencil alongside it in a modern hand.
