Synopsis

Of the four major surviving manuscripts of Anglo-Saxon poetry, MS. Junius 11 is the only one which is illustrated. This tenth-century manuscript contains four poems based on the Old and New Testaments: Genesis A and B, Exodus, Daniel, and Christ and Satan. It was given by Francis Junius in 1677 to the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford.



For the first time, the entire manuscript is available here in an innovative, highly accessible format. The CD contains images of each opening and each page of the manuscript, visible at high magnification, and a `live' transcription and translation of the poems with hyperlinks, allowing powerful global searches across the entire text. A full translation of the entire text is also linked to the transcription and the relevant manuscript page.



The CD also includes high resolution images of all the drawings and initials in the manuscript, and exterior photographs of its medieval binding. The powerful and realistic magnifier makes it possible to zoom in on the manuscript pages with varying degrees of magnification. The meaning and importance of the drawings are discussed in a detailed introduction and commentary, supplemented by a full bibliography.



This exciting, ground-breaking CD will appeal to all scholars and students of Anglo-Saxon literature, art, history, and culture, as well as to bibliophiles and collectors.

Bernard J. Muir is Professor of Medieval Studies at The University of Melbourne; he is best known for his digital facsimile editions of major Anglo-Saxon poetic manuscripts and DVDs focusing on Latin palaeography and the medieval scriptorium.
