About the Edition

The Old English original text and Modern English translation are on facing pages (left and right respectively). Some of the original is in Latin: some prefatory material, and the titles of the chapters. These are also translated.

The "plain text" version is OCR, with many errors: the Latin and Old English are almost unreadable. Here is one sentence of each, first as in the OCR and then as I have transcribed them from the PDF:

LATIN, p.1:

do Arcliirpiscopo Sigcrico pcrprtiiain hot-pitalrni <»ptat in

MODERN ENGLISH TRANSLATION (of the OE, not of the Latin), p.3:
