The Recovery of Old English

Details

Eight papers, some of which were presented at the 29th International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University in 1994, chart the progress of Old English studies from the earliest work of the mid 16th century through to the heyday of the early 18th century. Subjects include the movement of Anglo-Saxon studies from London to Cambridge and, finally, to Oxford, the influence of Richard Verstegen's engraved depictions of pagan Saxon gods, the early history of printed Anglo-Saxon texts, the evidence of handwritten workbooks, lexicography and a bibliography.
