I. Plan of the Wobk. 

When in 1889 I issued the small edition of two of the 
Saxon Chronicles parallel for the years 787-1001 a.d., I ex- 
pressed the hope that in the course of the next year or two I 
might be able to accomplish a complete edition of the whole 
work. That hope has for various reasons not been realised. Of 
those reasons only one need be mentioned here. The Delegates 
of the Clarendon Press have honoured me with the request that 
I should re-edit for them the Latin Text of Bede's 'Historia 
Ecclesiastica Qentis Anglorum.' Seeing that so much of the 
earlier part of the Saxon Chronicle is based on Bede, it would 
be, in the strictest .sense of the word, preposterous to under- 
take the criticism of the foifmer before dealing with the latter. 
The publication of the introduction and notes to the Chronicle 
must consequently be deferred until I have completed my work 
on Bede. It has been decided, however, to issue the present 
volume, containing the text, appendices, critical notes and glos- 
sary, at once. It is complete in itself, and it is believed that 
in the glossary everything is contained that is necessary for 
the linguistic interpretation of the texts. 


The plan of this work aims at reproducing the MSS. as 
nearly as possible ; and with this object all the texts have been 
collated afresh. I can honestly say that I have spared no pains 
to make the texts as correct as possible. But I have so often 
discovered errors where I load thought that everything was 
correct, that I dare not assert that none such have escaped me. 
Some additional various readings, chiefly from Wheloc's edition 
of the burnt MS. A. are given in Appendix C. Of these a few 
are of considerable importance. 

The plan of this edition of course precluded any idea of nor- 
malising the texts. I have however in the glossary carefully 
marked the length of the syllables, and distinguished late and 
abnormal forms by enclosing them in round brackets. 

In the glossary I have aimed at giving not only every word, 
but every form which occurs in the two MSS. 2S. and E. here 
printed in full. So that in regard to them the glossary will, I 
believe, be found to be a complete register of all variations. In the 
case of the other MSS. from which merely extracts are given, 
only the principal forms are registered in the glossary; minute 
variations of spelling, <kc., being, as a rule, ignored. As how- 
ever all passages in which the other MSS. vary to any important 
extent from 'R, and E. have been embodied either in the text or 
in the critical notes, it is believed that the glossary will afford 
a tolerably complete measure of the Anglo-Saxon historical 
vocabulary as represented by the Chronicles. 

The arrangement of the glossary was a matter of no slight 
mechanical difficulty, because it had to be compiled from texts 
varying considerably in date and place of origin. The actual 
plan is due to practical considerations; and that form was 
adopted as the type which would enable the greatest number 
of the words occurring in the texts to be brought together 
without alteration. Hence where the orthography of the two 
texts differs, the rather late forms of E. have been taken as 


the type in preference to the occasionally archaic forms of H, 
The system thus resulting from a balance of convenience has, I 
hope, been carried out with consistency. Further details as to 
the arrangement of the glossary will be found in the explanatory 
note which precedes it, which the reader is advised to consult 
carefully before making use of the glossary. 

A word must be said as to the punctuation. Here, too, I 
have endeavoured to mark the peculiarities of the MSS. The 
only stops which occur in the MSS. are as a rule the point 
either on or above the line (.) (•), the inverted semicolon (f), and 
the peculiar stops wliich occur in MS. 2?., represented in the 
text approximately by (r) and (:,). All these have been 
retained ; stops not in the MSS. are represented by commas 
and semicolons. In a few instances, so few that they might 
I think be counted on the fingers of one hand, the colon and 
semicolon do occur in the MSS. ; here the colon has been 
retained, the semicolon has been inverted. 

The text of A. has been considerably interpolated. In a few 
cases these additions are in good and fairly early hands. Such 
passages are printed in smaller type, but not in italics. The 
bulk of these interpolations, however, are due to a hand of the 
twelfth century, and are given in small italics. 

Letters or words wanting in any MS., and supplied from 
other sources, are enclosed in square brackets. 

Passages in F. which are enclosed in round brackets are in the 
MS. insertions on the margin or above the line. In many cases 
it is very difficult to determine whether they are by the same 
hand as the text or a difiPerent one. 

In other cases words or letters inserted by the scribe of the 
text above the line are marked by convergent dashes, e. g. for'tS'- 
ferde ; 983 E. It seemed worth while to mark these cases, as 
they often appear to indicate a difference between phonetic 
and historical spelling. The scribe first spelt the word as he 


pronounced it, then his eye told him that something was 
wrong, and he inserted the missing letter ahove the line. 

The expansion of contractions is indicated in the usual way 
by italics, A few contractions have been left unexpanded, partly 
because of their frequent occurrence, but still more because it 
was impossible to be sure what was the exact form which the 
scribe had in his mind. A list of these unexpanded contrac- 
tions precedes the glossary'. 

II. The Manuscripts. 

Discussion of the mutual relations, special characteristics, 
and comparative value of the diflferent MSS. of the Anglo-Saxon 
Chronicle, must be reserved for the second volume. A brief 
list of them is however given here, for convenience of refer- 
ence, and in explanation of the critical notes. 

This, the first of our two parallel texts, is commonly known 
as the Parker MS., because it is one of the many treasures 
given by Archbishop Parker to Corpus Christi College, Cam- 
bridge. It is numbered 173 in Nasmith's Catalogue. It is 
described by Wanley, p. 130, and by Sir T. D. Hardy, * Catalogue 
of British History,' i. 651. It is often cited as the Winchester 
Chronicle, because it is believed to be based upon a Chronicle 
now lost which had its origin at Winchester. It belonged, 
however, to Christ Church, Canterbury, and it was at Canterbury 
that the later entries were made, and the passages alluded to 
above interpolated. A large number of these interpolations 
have to do with Canterbury and its See. 


This is also a Canterbury book. It is now in the Cottonian 
Collection of the British Museum. (Tiberius A. vi.) It is 


described by Wanley, p. 224, and by Hardy, i. 655. It ends 
with the year 977, and has hardly any special points of interest 
except the insertion of the Mercian Chronicle, which will be 
noticed more fully under C. 


This is also a Cottonian MS. (Tiberius B. i.) It is described 
by "Wanley, p. 219, and by Hardy, i. 656. To name this MS. 
like H, and E. from its place of deposit, would not distinguish 
it from B. D. and F. It is best therefore to designate it from 
its probable place of origin as the Abingdon Chronicle. Its 
main importance consists perhaps in its later entries. But 
even apart from these it contains many points of interest, of 
which the most striking is one which it shares with B., viz. 
the incorporation in an unchanged form of the little Mercian 
Chronicle, or * Annals of ^Ethelflsed,' embracing the years 
902-924. (Vide in&a, pp. 92-3, 100, and notes.) 


This manuscript, like the last two, is Cottonian. (Tiberius B. 
iv.) It is described by Wanley, p. 220, and Hardy, i. 657. 
Like C, it is best designated by its place of origin, which was 
probably Worcester. To this origin it owes one of its salient 
features, viz. the embodiment of a considerable number of 
Northumbrian Annals. Through the medium of D., or Eome 
closely related MS., these Northumbrian Annals passed into 
E. The chief interest of D., as of C, lies in its later entries, 
hut even from the beginning it represents a new recension of 
the Chronicle, and is more closely related in many respects to 
E. than to any of the preceding MS8. These however are 
points which must be discussed elsewhere. D. has embodied 
the Mercian Chronicle of B. and C.. but has endeavoured to 


digest it into chronological order with the rest of its materials. 
(Vide infra, pp. 92-3, 100, and notes.) 


This, the second of our two parallel texts, is among Arch- 
bishop Laud's MSS. in the Bodleian Library (Laud, 636). It 
is described by Wanley, p. 64, and Hardy, i. 657. Its place of 
origin was Peterborough, as is abundantly proved by the in- 
sertion of many pieces of local history. It was written in the 
first instance about the year 1122, and continued in various 
hands to 11 54. Thus it carries us down three quarters of a 
century beyond any other MS. B. ends, as we have seen, in 
997, A. (W.) in 100 1, F. in 1058, C. in 1066, 2?. in 1070, 
D. in 1079. This MS. is, as I have said, largely based on D. 
or on some sister MS. But the scribe had other materials 
also which cannot be considered here. 


This is a Canterbury MS., and is now in the Cotton Collection. 
(Domitian A. viii.) It is described by Wanley, p. 220, and 
by Hardy, i. p. 660. I call it from its place of origin the 
Canterbury MS. This can create no confusion with H, or B. ; 
as B. is very rarely cited, and H. is best known from its place 
of deposit as the Parker MS. This Chronicle is to a great extent 
of the nature of an epitome. The compiler probably had before 
him our S., and either E. or some MS. very similar to E. But 
the chief interest of tliis MS. consists in the fact that it is 
bilingual, written both in Saxon and Latin. Thus it forms a 
point of transition between the native Annals and the Latin 
Chronicles which ultimately supplanted them. I have gone 
carefully over both versions, and have been able to glean from 
the Latin some interesting illustrations of the Saxon text. I 

PREFACE, xiii 

would instance especially the notes on pp. 58, 83 infra. The 
MS. is of the twelfth century. 

A. (G.) (W.) 

This is also a Cottonian MS. (Otho B. xi.) With the excep- 
tion of three leaves it perished in the Cottonian fire of 1731, 
and we are mainly dependent for our knowledge of it on 
Wheloc's edition of the Chronicle which was based on this MS. 
It has been customary to denote this MS. by the letter G. ; but 
Professor Earle rightly objected to this notation, as giving the 
impression that this MS. is later than F., whereas it is at least 
100 if not 150 years earlier. He suggested the notation A. to 
express the fact that it is an evident transcript of H, Mr. 
Thorpe called it W., the initial of Wheloc, and I have followed 
him wherever the readings cited are derived solely from Wheloc. 
When I wish to indicate the MS. as distinct from the edition I 
call it A. It ends, as I have said, at looi. (Vide infra, p. 132, 
and note p. 295.) 


This is a fragment of a lost Chronicle, and is described infra 
p. 245, note. 

It remains for me to express a few of the most prominent 
obligations which I have incurred in the preparation of this 
book. For the glossary I have naturally made constant use 
of the new Bosworth-Toller 'Anglo-Saxon Dictionary,' also 
of Mr. Sweet's ' Anglo-Saxon Beader,' the glossary to which 
contains an excellent selection of words. Grein's monumental 
' Sprachschatz der angelsachsischen Dichter ' has also been 
of the greatest service, especially for the poetical passages in 
the Chronicle.

In MS. C, the Chronicle is preceded by the following com- 
position, which consists of two parts; the first a sort of metrical 
calendar, the latter a string of proverbial sayings. These Poems 
were first printed by Hickes in his Thesaurus (1705), vol. i. 
p. 203, with a Latin translation : and again (after Hickes) in a 
separate form by the Rev. Samuel Fox with an English transla- 
tion and notes, with the title Menologium aeu CdUndariu/m 
Poeticumh, etc. (1830). Ebeling included them in his Angelsdeh- 
siaehes Leaebuch (1847). 

The Calendar was re-edited by Bouterwek with an interlinear 
Latin translation and notes, under the title : Calendcwide i. e. 
Menologium EcdeaicB Anglo^Saxonicce Poeticum (1857). 

Grein included both poems in the second volume of his 
monumental work : Bihlioihek der AngeladcTiaiscJisn Poeaie (i 858), 
now in course of republication by Wiilker. 

Professor Earle printed them in the Preface to the former 
edition of the present work (1865), justly remarking that 
* their intimate association with the Chronicle seemed to call for 
their insertion/ 

Mr. Sweet has printed the Gnomic Verses in the various 
editions of his Anglo-Saxon Keader, Clarendon Press, 1876 £F.

I. — ^A.D. 694. After this annal is inserted in F. King 
Wihtred's grant of privileges to the Church. This has been 
printed in Saxon and Latin from this MS. by Birch, Cartu- 
larium Saxonicum, i. 137-140, Nos. 94, g^. He also gives 
other versions of the document, Nos. 91-93. Of these No. 92 
had been already printed by Kemble, Cod. Dipl. v. 36, and 
Thorpe, Diplomatarium, p. 9 (who mark it as spurious). Nos. 
91, 92, 94 had been also printed by Haddan and Stubbs, iii. 
238 ff., and No. 94 in M.H.B. pp. 324 f., Thorpe, Chronicle, 
i. 66 f. It is not, therefore, reprinted here. 

II. — ^A. D. 796. This annal in F. runs on into Archbishop 
iESelheard's declaration of the Pope's commands respecting lay 
power in the Church. This is given in Saxon and Latin 
from this MS. by Birch, Cartularium, i. 404-5, No. 290 A, in 
Saxon by Haddan and Stubbs, iii. 516-7 ; M.H.B. pp. 338-9,

in Kemble, Cod. Dipl. v. 56-7 (who marks it as spurious). 
Haddan and Stubbs, iii. 517-8, Birch, i. 402-3. It is therefore 
unnecessary to reprint it here.

Tunc iESered rex et -^Ifredus Yrater eius' dederunt episcopo 
"Wiltun scire archiepiscopatum Cantie, eo quod ^ante fuerat 
monachus' eiusdem ecclesie. Cum autem uenisset Cantuariam, 
statim cogitare cepit quomodo possit eicere clericos de ecclesia 
Christi, quos Ceolnothus pro tali necessitate compulsus ibi 
posuit. Prime ^igitur' anno ordinationis suae tanta mortalitas 
facta est in ecclesia Christi, ut de tota congregatione monacho- 
rum non remanerent nisi quinque. Qua de causa quia ita subito 
non potuit inuenire tot monachos qui ibi seruitium Dei facere 
possent, ex simplicitate cordis precepit capellanis clericis suis, ut 
essent cum eis usque quo Deus pacificaret terram, quae tunc 
nimis erat turbata propter nimias tempestates bellorum. Accepit 
etiam de uillis suis presbiteros, ut essent cum monachis, ita 
tamen ut monachi semper haberent dominatum super clericos. 
Cogitauit idem ^ archiepiscopus' et sepe suis dixit, quia statim 
cum Deus pacem nobis dederit, aut isti clerici monachi fient, aut 
ego ubicumque monachos inueniam quos reponam. Scit enim 
Deus, inquid, quod aliter facere non possum. Sed nunquam 
temporibus suis pax fuit in Anglia, et ideo remanserunt clerici 

^ The text here is defective. A that about two lines are wanting, 
reference to the Latin seems to show ^ Sic MS. 


cum monachis, nee ullo tempore fuit ecclesia sine monachis. 
Sed nee iste ^Seredus archiepiscopus potuit facere. 

IV. A.D. 995. The following is F.'s Latin Version of this 
annal, which was promised above, p. 131, note 10 : — 

Iste fait prudens ualde, ita ut illo in tempore nullus 
^apientior haberetur in Anglia. Eecedente itaque inde rege, 
^Ifricus pergit Dorobemiam^ Ubi cum uenisset, receptus est^ 
a tali ordine clericorum, a quo minus uellet. Cogitauit igitur 
et multum secum tractans, quali modo possit eicere eos, quos 
sciebat in ecclesia Christi iniuste mansisse. Ut supra diximus^ 
ualde fuit prudens, et ecclesiasticis disciplinis plurimum instruct 
tus. Itaque prsecepit eongregari omnes quos sciebat pruden- 
tiores per totam Angliam, et maxime senes. Ad quem cum 
pro reuerentia idri fesUnanij&r uenissent, requisiuit ab eis si 
quid aut ipsi a suis antecessoribus de ecclesia Christi Cantise 
audissent) aut ipsi in aliquo loco ^e^'ssent, quis ordo in preedicta 
^cclesia Deo seruire debuisset, ^clericorum aut monachorum,' 
aut ^ quis ' eo tempore postquam Agustinus Angliam ingressus 
est, ibi locatus esset in initio. Ipse uero multa a multis antea 
^ inde ' audiuit, et in libris legit. Tunc seniores et prudentiores 
narrauerunt ei, quod inde a suis patribus audissent. Postquam 
Deus, Mnquiunt,' per beatum Augustinum aperuit cor regis 
^delberti ad suscipiendam fidem Christi, ipse Augustinus elegit 
sibi sedem in ciuitate Dorobemia quoB erat caput totius regni 
.^Edelberti regis, * vbi ' inuenit quoddam opus inceptum Homano 
opere, quod auxiliante rege statuit perficere. Quod dum per- 
fectum esset rex -Sgelbertus cepit consilium quserere ab 
Augustino et a cseteris consiliariis suis, quem ordinem mona- 
chorum uel clericorum conuenientius in ilia ecclesia ad 
seruiendum Deo constituere potuisset. Qui omnes dederunt 
consilium, ut rex ex sua parte mitteret nuntios sues, et 
Augustinus monachos sues cum nuntiis regis Bx)ni8e, ad papam 
Gregorium, et eius consilio sicut antea idem Augustinus uenit 
in Angliam, ita et ecclesia iam nominata dedicare^i^ et ordi- 
naretur. Quod et factum est. Nam rex statim paratis nuntiis 
suis, misit KomsB, et Augustinus nichilominus suos. Cum 
autem uenissent ad papam, et nuntias^eri^ quod Angli susce- 


pissent fidem Christi, gauisus est ualde. Audit! s itaque omnibus 
quae a rege Augustino mandata fuerant, statim remisit nuntios, 
cum quibus hos uiros misit Augustino ut essent ei in adiutorium 
ad fidem Christi confirmandam; Mellitum, lustum, Paulinum, 
Bufianum. Per istos etiam misit Augustino pallium, aique 
in quo loco deberet episcopos ordinare, et ponere mandauit; 
ecclesiam quoque quam fecerat in honorem Ihesu Christi, et S. 
Marise matris eius, prsecepit dedicari, eiti^emque ordinis quo 
ipse Augustinus, et alii quos ipse sibi misit, erant, in eadem 
ecclesia ad seruiendum Deo ponere, sibique ibidem sedem archi- 
episcopalem et omnibus ^MQceasorihus suis statuere, omnesque 
archiepiscopos sibi succedentes monachos esse debere, ex parte Dei 
uiuentis, et beati Petri, et ex sua, et omnium succe^^orum prsBcepit. 
Cum autem nuntii reuersi uenissent ad regem et ad Augustinnm, 
gaudio maximo repleti sunt pro tali mandato. Tunc Augustinus 
festinanter dedicauit ecclesiam illo die quo festum sanctorum 
Primi et Feliciani, * v, Idus lunii,' habetur, posuitque * in ea ' 
monachos sicut papa mandauit; et ex ipsis ordinabantur 
episcopi per Angliam sicut ipse legisti in Ystoria Anglorum. 
Itaque cum ista ^Ifricus archiepiscopus audisset, et tales testes 
habuisset, qui illo tempore maxime in consilio regis erant, 
gaudio repletus est. Addiderunt adhuc prsedicti uiri : Ita 
sicut diximus, permanserunt monachi in ecclesia Christi Can- 
tuarise, tempore Augustini, Laurentii, Melliti, lusti, ZTonorii, 
Deusdedit, Theodori, Brihtwaldi, Tatwini, Nothelmi, Cuthberti, 
Breguuini, lanberti, ASelhardi, Wulfredi, Fe^ologildi. Hlo uero 
primo anno quo C^elnodus suscepit archiepiscopatum Cantis 
tanta mortalitas facta est, ut in ecclesia Christi non remanerent 
nisi y. monachi, et ideo pro tali necessitate idem C. archiepiscopus 
accepit de deride suis presbiteros, qui quousque restauraret 
ecclesiam monachis, iuuarent paucos monachos qui remanserunt. 
Nunc autem est in potestate regis et tua, si diutius uultis ut 
ibi clerici remaneant, quia postquam pro tali necessitate ibi 
positi sunt, non potuerunt leuius eici quam modo. Tunc 
archiepiscopus cum magna festinatione cum his onmibus quos 
secum ibi habebat, perrexit ad regem ^gelbertum, et indicauit 
ei per ordinem heec omnia. Tunc dixit accepto consilio rex : 


Hoc uidetur ^ mihi ' melius consilium, ut eatis Bomse pro pallio 
uestro, et indicetis apostolico hcBC ommia, et secundum suum 
consilium per omnia fieri concede. Dixerunt omnes optimum 
esse consilium regis. Archiepiscopus autem paratis rebus suis 
perrexit Eomam. Statim uero ut clerici audierunt consilium 
regis, parauerunt duos ex ipsis qui irent Eome, portantes secum 
multum auri et argenti, quod darent papse pro pallio. Sed 
nuntii archiepiscopi precesserunt. Nam cum clerici peruene- 
runt ad papam, respondit se nolle illorum uerba suscipere, quia 
nullum signum nee a rege nee a populo terrse secum haberent. 
Discedentibus clericis, uenit archiepiscopus ad papam, qui 
suscepit eum cum magno honore. In crastino fecit eum 
celebrare missam ad altare beati Petri, et ipse impo«uit ei 
proprium pallium suum. Cum hsec ita facta essent, archi- 
episcopus cepit dicere pape de clericis, et de ecclesia Christi 
sicut superius dictum est, et papa ei de clericis quomodo 
uenerupt ad eum, et quod obtulerunt sibi magnam pecuniam pro 
pallio ; et adiecit papa : Eedite in Angliam cum benedictione 
Dei, et Sancti Petri, et in ecclesia tibi commendata, eiusdem 
ordinis in ea ponite quem papa Qregorius Augustino precepit, 
et hoc tibi precipio ex parte Dei et beati Petri, et nostra. 
Tunc archiepiscopus ita rediit. Cum autem TQUGxtUset in 
Angliam, statim adiit ecclesiam suam, et post adiit regem, et 
letatus est rex, et omnis Anglia, de reditu suo, et quod omnia 
secundum uoluntatem regis peregit. Post hsec reuersus ad 
sedem suam, et eiectis clericis, locauit ^cclesiam monachis 
sicut papa ilium tm2)€rau£rat^ secundum quod beatus Qre- 
gorius prsBcepit Augustino facere in primordio §cclesi§.^ 

V. The following piece contains the Latin Acts of Lanfranc 
referred to above, p. 206, note 2. 

Hoc anno Lanfrancus Cadomensis abbas, compellente rege 
Willelmo, et iubente papa Alexandro Angliam uenit, et 
primatum regni Anglorum in secclesia Cantuariensi suscepit, 
eligentibus eum senioribus eiusdem secclesise, cum episcopis et 
principibus, clero et populo Anglise, in curia regis. Cum 
autem Cantuariam uenisset, obuiam ei processit honorabiliter 

^ The words and letters printed in italics are now no longer legible. 


conuentus secclesle Ghristi, coniuncto sibi toio conuenta Sandi 
Augustini cam ^electo eiusdem aecclesiaB^ abbate Scotlando. 
Ad quern consecrandum omnes episcopi regni Anglomm, 
seruato antique more, uenerunt, et qui uenire non poterant, 
litteris et legatione sese humiliter excusauerunt. Non multis 
post diebus Thomas Eboracensi consecrandus archiepiscopus Can- 
tuariam uenit. Cumque Lanfrancus, cum sufiraganeis episcopis, 
quos ad banc consecrationem aduocauerat, indutus ante altare 
Chiisti consideret, et totus conuentus, ut in tali Sacramento 
fieri Bolet, albis bonorifice indutus, in cboro staret, addudtur 
Thomas examinandus. Cum uero inter alia professionem ab eo 
Lanfrancus cum sacramento requireret, respondit Thomas se 
hoc minime facturum, quia suos antecessores hoc Lanfranci ante- 
cessoribus fecisse non cognouerat. Lanfrancus autem quanuis 
sufficienti ratione hoc eum ex antiquo more facere debere 
monstraret, non tamen ille adquieuit. Surrexit itaque Lan- 
francus et Thomas non sacratus abscessit^ regem adiit, et de 
Lanfranco querimoniam fecit ; quem Lanfrancus mox subsecutus, 
se et secclesiam suam rationem habere in iis quae postulauerat 
ostendit; nee destitit, donee Thomas, licet multo labore, 
Cantuariam rediit^ ibique, quicquid Lanfrancus ab eo quserebat, 
humiliter exhibuit. Nee multo post Lanfrancus ab omnibus 
Anglici regni episcopis professionem qusesiuit, et accepit.. 

Secundo anno ordinationis suae Eomam iuit, quem papa 
Alexander in tantum honorauit, ut ei contra morem assurgeret, 
et duo pallia ob signum prsecipui amoris tribueret ; quorum 
unum Homano more ^ab altare' accepit, alterum uero ipse papa^ 
undo missas celebrare consueuerat, sua manu porrexit. In cuius 
praesentia Thomas de primatu Cantuariensis secclesise, et de sub- 
iectione quorundam episcoporum, calumniam mouit, quae qualem 
finera postea in Anglia accepit, Lanfrancus breuiter et absolute 
scribit in epistola, quam praefato Alexandre papae direxit. Hoc 
quoque anno generale concilium "Wentonie celebrauit, in quo 
et Wluricum, Noui Monasterii abbatem deposuit, multaque de 
Christianae religionis cultu seruanda instituit. Post dies paucos 
in Lundonia Osbernum, Essecistrensi episcopum, et Cantuarie 
Scotlandum, aecclesiae Sancti Augustini abbatem, sacrauit. 


Tercio anno in Cloecistra sacranit Petrum Licifeldensi sine 
Cestrensi episcopum. Hoc quoque anno habitum est magnum 
placitum in loco qui dicitur Pinenden, in quo Lanfrancus 
diratiocinauit se suamque aecclesiam omnes terras et consuetu- 
dines suas ita liberas terra mariqiie habere, sicut rex habet 
suas, exceptis tribus, uidelicet, si regalis uia fuerit effosa, si 
arbor incisa iuxta super eam ceciderit, si homicidium factum 
uel sanguis in ea fiisus fuerit ; in iis qui deprehensus, et ab eo 
pignus acceptum fuerit, regi emendabit ; alioquin liber a regis 
exactoribus erit. 

Quarto anno Patricium Dublinise ciuitati in Hybemia 
sacrauit episcopum Lundonie, a quo et professionem accepit, 
et litteras ei deferendas regibus Hybemise dignas ualde 
memorise contradidit. 

Quinto anno generale concilium Lundonie celebrauit, cuius 
gestionem rogatu multorum litteris commendauit. 

Sexto anno dedit Hemosto, monacho in capitulo secclesise 
Christi, aecclesiam Rofensem regendam, qusm et Lundonie 
sacrauit. Wentonie concilium celebrauit; et Hernostus hoc 
ipso anno ab hac uita migrauit. 

Septimo anno Gundulfo monacho secclesiam Bofensem tradidit, 
quern etiam Cantuarie sacrauit. Hoc quoque anno misit ei 
litteras Thomas archiepiscopus Eboracensis, in quibus rogauit 
ut sibi mitterentur duo episcopi ad consecrandum clericum 
quendam^ qui ei litteras de Horgadis insulis detulit, ut ipsarum 
insularum episcopus consecraretur. Cuius petitioni Lanfrancus 
annuens, mandauit Wlstano Wigorniensi, et Petro Cestrensi 
episcopis, ut Eboracam irent, et cum Thoma tantam rem 
complere satagerent. 

Octauo anno concilium Londonie celebrauit, in quo Ailnodum, 
Glastingensis coenobii abbatem, deposuit. 

Anno xi. celebrauit concilium apud Claudiam ciuitatem, ubi 
et Thomas archiepiscopus Eboracensis, iubente rege, et Lan- 
franco consentiente, sacrauit Willelmum Dunelmensi episcopum, 
eo quod a Scottorum episcopis qui sibi subiecti sunt, habere 
adiutorium non potuit. Huius ministerii cooperatores fuerunt, 
Lanfranco prsecipiente, Wlstanus, Osbemus, Giso, Rotbertus 



episcopi. Eo quoque tempore misit in Hibemiam Donaldo 
episcopo litteras sacrae doctrinse pinguedine refertas. 

Sexto decimo auno sacrauit Donatum monachum suum 
Cantuarie ad regimen DubliDiae, petente rege, clero, et populo 
Hybemise, quibus etiam literas exortatorias misit. Hoc quoque 
anno, apud Cleucestram concilium celebrauit, in quo Wlfketelum 
Crulandensis coenobii abbatem deposuit. Rotbertum Cestrensi 
et Willelmum Helmeanensi siniul uno die episcopos Cantuarie 
sacrauit. Mauritium Lundoniensi secclesise apud Wentoniam 
consecrauit ; qui sacratus, post paucos dies matri suae secclesise 
Cantuariensi cum honestis muneribus se prseseutauit. 

Octauo decimo anno, mortuo rege Willelmo trans mare, 
filium eius Willelmum, sicut pater constituit, Lanfrancus in 
regem elegit, et in ecclesia beati Petri, in occidentali parte 
Lundonise sita, sacrauit, et coronauit. Eodem anno Godefridum 
Cicestrensi secclesise antistitem, et Widonem secclesie Sancti 
Augustini abbatem, et lohannem Wellensi secclesise epi- 
scopum Cantuarie in sede metropoli examinauit, atque sacrauit. 
In crastino huius consecrationis Widonem abbatem per semetip- 
sum Lanfrancus, associato sibi Odone Baiocensi episcopo fratre 
regis qui tunc Cantuariam uenerat, ad Sanctum Augustinum 
duxit, mandans fratribus eiusdem secclesise, quatenus eum 
susciperent ut proprium abbatem atque pastorem ; qui unani- 
miter animati responderunt, se illi nee uelle subesse, nee ilium 
suscipere. Yenit itaque Lanfrancus adducens abbatem ; et cum 
monachos pertinaciter uideret resistere, nee ei uelle parere, 
prsecepit ut omnes, qui sibi nollent oboedire, continuo exirent. 
Exierunt ergo pariter fere omnes, et Lanfrancus cum suis 
abbatem bonorifice introductum in sede locauit, et secclesiam 
commendauit. Friorem autem eiusdem secclesise, nomine 
-^Ifwinum, et alios quos uoluit cepit, et Cantuariam clau- 
strali custodia seruandos protenus transmisit ; eos uero qui 
fortiores, et caput scandali extiterant, in castellum duci, ibique 
in carcere custodiri prsecepit. Cumque omnibus rite peractis 
domum rediret, nunciatum est ei monachos, qui exierant, sub 
castro secus secclesiam Sanctse Miltrudse consedisse. Quibns 
mandauit ut, si uellent, ante horam nonam ad secclesiam impone 


redirent; set si illam prseterirent, non lam libere, sed ut 
fugitiui reuenirent. Hoc audito, in ambiguo habebant redire, 
uel remanere. Hora autem refectionis cum esurirent, plnres 
ex eis poenitentes susb pertinacise ad Lanfrancum miserunt, at ei 
omnem oboedientiam promiserunt. Quibus continuo pepercit 
mandans ut redireut, et professionem suam prsefato abbati se 
seruaturos Sacramento confirmarent. Itaque redierunt, et se 
deinceps fore fideles et oboedientes Widoni abbati super corpus 
beati Augustini iurauerunt. Qui vero remanserant cepit Lan- 
francus, et per eecclesias Anglise diuisit, constrinxit, donee eos 
obedientiam profiteri coegit. Circa idem tempus iEluredum 
unum ex illis uagantem fugiendo cepit, et Cantuarie in sede 
metropoli cum quibusdam sociis illius qui abbati malum 
moliti sunt, ferro compeditos, multis diebus rigorem ordinis in 
claustro discere fecit ; sed postquam sufficienter humiliati sunt, 
ut estimatum est, et emendationem promiserunt, misertus eorum 
Lanfrancus, de singulis locis, quo eos disperserat, prsecepit 
reduci, et suo abbati reconciliari. 

Eodem anno dissensione reiterata, pemiciem abbati clam 
machinati sunt; et dum unus ex eis, nomine Columbanus, 
deprehensus fuisset, iussit eum Lan&ancus sibi adduci. Cum- 
que coram eo astaret, interrogauit si abbatem uoluisset peri- 
mere. Qui confestim, Si, inquit, potuissem, pro certo eum 
interfecissem. Prsecepit itaque Lanfrancus, ut ante portas 
beati Augustini, spectante populo, ligaretur nudus, flagellis 
afficeretur ; deinde, prseciso capicio, ab urbe pelleretur. Factum 
est ut imperauit, et ex hoc inquietudinem cseterorum, donee 
uixit, sua formidine quassauit. 

Nono decimo anno defunctus est Lanfrancus uenerabilis 
archiepiscopus, et sepultus est in sede metropoli Cantuarie; 
qui in sede pontificali sedit annis decem et octo, mensibus ix, 
duobus diebus. De cuius actibus, edificiis, elemosinis, laboribus, 
scriptura quae in eius anniuersario legitur ex parte commemorat. 
Multa enim era' n't ualde. Post eius obitum, Monachi Sancti 
Augustini, prsefato abbati sue Widoni palam resistentes, ciues 
Cantuariae contra eum concitauerunt ; qui ilium armata manu 
in sua domo interimere temptauerunt. Cuius familia cum 

u 2 


resisteret, pluribus utrinque uulneratis, et quibusdam inter- 
fectis, uix abbas inter manus illorum illesus euasit ; et ad 
matrem secclesiam, querendo auxilium, Cantuariam fugit. 
Huius facti fama citati suffraganei eiusdem SBCclesise, Walkelmus 
Wentanus et Gundulfus Rofensis episcopi, Cantuariam cum 
quibusdam nobilibus, quos miserat rex, ueniunt, ut tantse 
offensse uindictam adhibeant. Auditis ergo rationibus seditionis, 
monachi a culpa excusari non poterant : quos coram populo 
subire disciplinam, quia palam peccauerant, ii qui aduenerant, 
decreuerunt ; sed prior et monachi SBCclesiaB Christi pietate 
moti restiterunt; ne, si palam punirentur, infames deinceps 
fierent, sicque eorum uita ac seruitus contemneretur. Igitur 
concessum est, ut in secclesia fieret, ubi non populus, sed soli 
ad hoc electi admitterentur. Vocati sunt ad hoc monachi 
ecclesise Christi, Wido uidelicet, et Normannus, qui disciplinam 
ad episcoporum imperium intulerunt. Deinde diuisi sunt per 
aecclesias Anglise, et loco illorum xxiiii. monachi eecclesise 
Christi admissi, cum priore nomine Antonio, qui subprioratus 
officio Cantuarie fungebatur. Ciues vero, qui abbatis curiam 
armata manu intrauerant, capti ; et qui se ab eius impugnatione 
purgare non poterant, oculos amiserunt. 

Post obitum Lanfranci caruit secclesia Christi Pastore iiii**^. 
annis, mensibus ix., et diebus ix. in quibus multa aduersa per- 
pessa est. Anno uero Dominicse incarnationis millesimo xciii.

In the references A. has been written for TT. throughout ; this will cause 
no confusion as the few quotations made from MS. A. are cited from 
Wheloc's edition, and are indicated by the letter W. 

The interpolations in MS. TT. are indicated by a. 

After 1080 A. D. no MS. is noted, except in the case of the fragment of H. ; 
because, with that exception, E. is the only MS. which extends beyond that 

The Menologium or Metrical Calendar contained in Appendix A is cited 
as M., with the number of the line suffixed ; and, for convenience of 
reference, the Gnomic Verses which follow the Menologium are counted 
as part of it. 

An asterisk after a form or reference means that the form or passage 
cited will be found in both the principal texts, 7C. and E. 

Where a word occurs in two or more different forms these forms are 
numbered in the head-line, and to save repetition corresponding numbers 
affixed to the references given, thus : S-flyman*^ (i), a-flieman (A) (2). p.pL 
-mdon. 797 A. (2) E. (i). This means that the form S-flyman occurs in 
both texts, the form I-flieman only in 7C. ; and that the preterite plural 
will be found at the year 797, in TT. in the form afltemdon, in E. in the 
form aflymdon. 

A dagger prefixed to a word means that it occurs only in the poetical 
portions of the Chronicle (including the Menologium). 

Forms which are abnormal or corrupt are included in round brackets. 

Where the corruption is in the syntax and not in the form (e. g. &fem. 
article agreeing with a subst. masc.) it is not, as a rule, noted in the 

Keference is made by means of annals, unless the annal covers more 
than a page, in which case the page is generally given in addition. The 
letters t, h, m, 1, b, suffixed to page-references indicate top, high, middle, 
low, bottom. 

Names of persons and places are not included in the glossary ; indices of 
these will be given in vol. 2. 

A reference without any form preceding it indicates that the liead-word 
occurs in that place in an unchanged form ; i. e. verbs in the infinitive, 
substantives in the nominative or in an oblique case which does not differ 
in form from the nominative. 

Unless otherwise noted the finite mood intended is always the indicative, 
the person, always the third person (singular or plural). 

The abbreviations st. sir. wk. applied to verbs and nouns indicate strong 
and weak respectively. In the case of adjectives the terms indefinite and 
definite are sometimes used to express the strong and weak declensionB. 


p, =s preterite, p. p,^ past participle, fq, frequently. 
The ordinaiy grammatical abbreviations require no explanation. 
Words which app>ear to be compounds have sometimes to be sought 
under their simples. 

Grerman words are given for comparison only when they are nearer in 
form or meaning to the Anglo-Saxon than any word in modem English. 
Obsolete or provincial words are printed in spaced type, e.g. ^ave.* 
i and y are often interchanged. 
« — e 

o — a I. » 

w — u „ „ 

(especially in terminations). 

Words in which a occurs have often to be sought under ea. 
„ ft and y „ „ eo. 

„ eo, ie, if e „ „ y. 

e. g. in the case of the umlaut of 4a, do, the Late West Saxon p has been 
taken as the type, and not the Early West Saxon ie. 

r, and I, and w, initial, are sometimes found for hr, hi, and hw^ and (in 
the case of the first two) conversely. 

i' initial often stands iot ge-. 

]> and 9 are not distinguished. 

The terminations -lic^ -lice, have been marked long in accordance with 
tradition ; but later researches have shown that before the chronicles were 
written the i had probably been shortened.

(See however land-here, scip-

906 E., East Engle here means : the 
Danes settled in East Anglia. 
In 1006 E., in here is used of the 
native force, perhaps as being 
nearly as fatal to the people as the 
Danes ; in 684E., here is used of
