See more An inscription on f. 7r associates the chronicle or rather memoriale with a frater Walter of Coventry. Stubbs argued that he would have been the author of the chronicle, that the manuscript was compiled at York (largely on the basis of f. 5 and similarities with material elsewhere) and that Walter was himself a brother of the community at St Mary’s. M. R. James, however, argued that Walter of Coventry’s relationship to St Mary’s remains unproven and that the inscripion merely suggests that he had been the owner of the MS. In support of the latter, he cites a number of examples of the phrase Memoriale foll. by a personal name, which he suggests refer to “a donation on the part of the person named”.
Links to texts use a standardised title for the catalogue and so may or may not reflect what is in the manuscript itself, hence the square brackets. Their appearance comes in three basic varieties, which are signalled through colour coding and the use of icons, , and :
- - If a catalogue entry is both available and accessible, a direct link will be made. Such links are blue-ish green and marked by a bookmark icon.
- - When a catalogue entry does not exist yet, a desert brown link with a different icon will take you to a page on which relevant information is aggregated, such as relevant publications and other manuscript witnesses if available.
- - When a text has been ‘captured’, that is, a catalogue entry exists but is still awaiting publication, the same behaviour applies and a crossed eye icon is added.
The above method of differentiating between links has not been applied yet to texts or citations from texts which are included in the context of other texts, commonly verses.
While it is not a reality yet, CODECS seeks consistency in formatting references to locations of texts and other items of interest in manuscripts. Our preferences may be best explained with some examples:
- f. 23ra.34: meaning folio 23 recto, first column, line 34
- f. 96vb.m: meaning folio 96, verso, second column, middle of the page (s = top, m = middle, i = bottom)
- Note that marg. = marginalia, while m = middle.
- p. 67b.23: meaning page 67, second column, line 23
