A Lexicon to the Blickling Homilies
9780826497734   Product Code: 85885
Dating from the 10th century, the Blickling homiletic texts are among the earliest extant examples of prose in English. This concordance, which complements Kelly's recent edition and translation of the homilies, is 'a resource for those who wish to further unlock the linguistic, religious and social treasures with which these texts abound'. Kelly uses the latest scholarship on Old English to provide definitions, corrections of scribal errors and straightforward cross- references within the texts themselves.
