Index Med Eng Prose 11, Trinity, Camb (Hardback)
The library of Trinity College, Cambridge, contains the largest collection of medieval manuscripts of any college in Great Britain, and one of the most important in the world. The subjects contained therein cover the whole range of topics usual to medieval manuscripts, although the majority were produced in Britain. Particularly noteworthy are Wycliffite translations of the Bible, sermons, and Wycliffite tracts; three manuscripts containing Nicholas Love'sMirror of the Blessed Lif of IhesuCrist; major collections of devotional texts; scientific manuscripts; and unique Middle English translations of classical and early medieval texts. A number of known Middle English texts not previously thought to be in the Trinity Collection are identified, opening new areas for study of Trinity's manuscripts.
