!> = th. 

^ = g or y ; Bomeiimes at the end of a word it may mean h or gh, pronounced 
or silent. 

n = n or ▼ as the case may be. 

i is sometimes shown short and sometimes long (i or I). Whenever instances 
of its use in the latter form can be expressed by the more modern 'j' this 
has been done : e. g. both the forms ' iewis ' and ' jewis ', ' ion ' and ' jon ', &c., 
will be found in the transcript. The long I is generally used to indicate 
the personal pronoun or the beginning of a sentence. (See Facsimile, 
f. 387 r, lines 1 and 3, and last line : ' In att he? peynes pe '.) 

Only the punctuation actually indicated in the MS. itself has been entered 
in the transcript. 

Italics in the text of the transcript represent contractions, which, for the 
sake of convenience, have been expanded and written in fQll. Words under- 
lined in the same are underlined in the MS. (See Facsimile, f. 387 r, lines 5, 
16, and 17.) Whether this was done by the writer or by a reader is difficult 
to say. It has therefore been shown in every case wherever it occurs. 


FoTiR years ago this MS. was shown to the Rev. H, M. Bannister 
by Mr. Madan, one of the Bodleiaii Librarians, with the suggestion 
that he should publish it if he thought it of sufficient value. It so 
happened that the editor was present on this occaaion, and when 
Mr. Bannister made a short examination of the MS., the first chap- 
ter which came under particular notice was that entitled ' Omnia 
terra'. This expression alone, as applied to Monte Testaccio, 
sufficed to show that the work was of considerable interest, and 
likely to yield some valuable information. 

Mr. Bannister, whose whole time is fully occupied with bis 
own special studies, could not, however, find leisure to undertake 
the necessary transcription, and the editor — although he had 
never attempted anything of the kind before — offered to do his 
best if Mr. Bannister would kindly help him with bis advice. 
Mr. Bannister was good enough to promise his assistance, and it 
has been most generously given; indeed, it is not too much to 
say that, without it, the editor would have been quite unequal 
to the task for want ot experience. 

At this time the name of the author was unknown ; but it was 
hoped to be able to ascertain the date of the work, to compare the 
facts therein mentioned with those given by known contemporaries, 
and so test the accuracy and powera of observation of the writer. 
Fortunately, the MS. yielded abundant information on these points. 
It was clear that ho was an Augustinian friar, and the author of 
another work entitled Concordia ' (see p. 92 and the facsimile of 
f. 387 r of the MS.) ; that he was in Rome during the pontificate of 
Nicholas V (1447-54); and that be came on a pilgrimage under 
the special protection of Sir Thomas Tudenhani, a gentleman of 
Norfolk, near King's Lynn, who was executed for high treason in 
1461. As there was an Augustinian house at King's Lynn, the 
natural inference was that the author came from it. Whether or 
not he wrote the book in England from notes taken in Rome —

from mtemal evidence it is probable that he did — he must have 
gathered the information he gives us between the years 1447 and 
1452, inasmuch as he mentions the recent death of Henry Beaufort, 
Bishop of Winchester, who died April 11, 1447, and describes John 
Kempe as Cardinal of S. Batbina and Archbishop of York, which he 
ceased to be in July, 1452, on promotion to the higher rank of 
Cardinal Bishop of S. Bufina and Archbishop of Canterbury. From 
several passages one can infer that Rome was much crowded when 
he was there, so that he probably took part in the Jubilee of 1450, 
for in the fifteenth century the population of Rome was not great. 

Fortunately we have other records of pilgrims about this period, 
notably Giovanni Rucellai, a Florentine merchant, and Niklaua 
Muffel, a Niimberg patrician. We have Ranulf Higden and 
Adam de Usk (an official of the Papal Court) for the period from 
1350 circa to 1416, before our chronicler's visit ; we can also consult 
von HarflTs Pilgerfahrt, and the anonymous author of Ein Siuldein, 
&ti„ Strossburg, 1500, for the latter part of the fifteenth century. 

But the most complete test of our author's accuracy is that he 
was in the habit of copying inscriptions and lists of relics in jnost 
of the chorchea which he visited. Fi-om those inscriptions which 
still exist (and there are several) it will be seen that our Augustinian 
friar is in every caae letter-perfect. We con therefore accept hia 
testimony as to those which have since disappeared. His keenness 
of observation is remarkable, and he has this one great superiority 
to most mediaeval writers : viz., that he is ma'^t careful not to put 
down a thing unless he has either seen it himself, or has, in his 
opinion, the best of authority for it. As examples of this refer, 
firstly, to what he says about the arckua Prisci Targuinii (p. 45): 
and, secondly, about the relics at 8. Lawrence in Panisperna 
{p. 102), In the former case he reproaches himself, and admits 
frankly that he either did not take the trouble to see, or failed to 
find the monument, and in the second that he did not make a copy 
of the list of relics because of the press of people there at the time. 
Ilia topography is, as u rule, most accurate, and he is a most careful 
observer and a well-read man. For his facts regarding ancient 
Rome he depends on the Mirabilia, the guide-book of all eilucated 
pilgrims of this period. It is also interesting to note that after his 
death he is sometimes styled ' Beatus ', and Henry Vll is known to 
have made an oSort to have him canonized. 

There is a great wealth of mediaeval legendary lore in Port I of 
the MS. This has been compared with the works of some of the 


best aathors on this subject, notably Adinolfi and Graf. The 
author takes this opportunity of acknowledging his indebtedness to 
Graf's Roma nella tnemoria e nell' imviaginasione del Medio Evo, 
i vols., l\irin, 1880, a book which has been of the greatest help, 
and has been very freely quoted. The legends regarding the lives 
of the saints in Parts II and III have also been compared with the 
recognized authorities on this subject. 

It will be observed that the editor has not entered upon any 
critical examination of the work or the text, for which, indeed, he 
feels that he is not qualified. He has merely made what he hopes 
is a faithful transcript, and has further attempted to illustrate the 
MS. by quoting from the writings of contemporary authors, and of 
others who have dealt with the subject-matter of this chronicle. 
The present volume was originally intended only to be published 
privately for the members of the British and American Society of 
Rome, as an interesting description of Home by an Englisli pilgrim. 
The editor had, at first, no idea of appealing to a wider audience. 
But a discovery made only a few weeks ago, at the time when this 
book was ready for publication, has thrown an entirely new light 
upon it. The author's identity has now been ascertained. This is 
a hitherto lost work of John Capgrave, Prior of King's Lynn and 
Provincial of the Auguatinian Order, a well-known writer and his- 
torian of the fifteenth century. The discovery was made in the 
following manner. 

On his way from Rome to Oxford, the editor took the transcript 
of the MS. to Sir George Warner at the British Museum, to ask his 
opinion as to the authorship of the MS. From the above-mentioned 
data he considered that the author might possibly be John Capgrave 
(1393-1464), who was known to have written a description of 
Rome. Tliis description bad disappeared, with the exception of two 
fragments which are attached to the binding of two other Capgrave 
MSS. at Oxford (Alt Soulsandltalliol College Libraries). Sir George 
Warner then showed the British Museum Capgrave MS. to the 
editor, who was at once struck with the remarkable similarity of 
its handwriting to that of the present work. This can )je observed 
by comparing the facsimile of the script of this work with that of 
the British Museum MS. The latter can be seen in E. K Text 
Society, vol. cxl. 1910, On comparing the text of the two frag- 
ments (which can he seen in vol. i of the Kolls Series, p. 35.5) 
with that of our MS., it was found that the latter was almost an 
exact copy of portions of chapters XI, XII, and XIII of Part 1 of 


thia book.' There was now no possible doubt thnt tlie present work 
is the lost description of Rome by John Capgrave, and that a literary 
discovery of considerable importance had been made. 

The further examination of the fragments in question, and of 
other MSS, reputed to be Capgrave 's autograph works, was left to 
the Rev. H. M. Bannister, as the editor felt that be was not quali- 
fied for that task. The result of Mr. Bannister's investigations at 
Oxford, Cambridge, and London, will be found in his Inti-oductory 

It now only remains to express the editor's thanks to those who 
have been good enough to help him, without which assistance he 
feels that the task would have been one beyond his powers. First 
and foremost his moat grateful thanks are due to his friend, the 
Rev. H. M. Bannister, who, whenever it was required, has been 
moat kind in giving his guidance and advice. He also wishes 
to mention his deep sense of the courtesy of the authorities of the 
Bodleian Library, who have readily granted him every facility for 
the transcription and publication of the work. Thanks are also due 
to the Provost of Oriel and to Father Ehrle, Prefect of the Vatican 
Library, who have kindly permitted the editor to reproduce the 
miniatures iu Oriel MS. 132 and Vatican Cod. Eteginen. 1880. Dr. 
Ashby, of the British School of Rome, has kindly helped with his 
advice, and permiasion to reproduce the illustrations of the Carnival 
on Monte Testaccio and the churches of Rome from old and rare 
prints in his possession. The editor also wishes to express bis 
obligation to Br. Ch. Hiilsen, and to authors whose works he has 
made use of. more especially to Professor Arturo Graf and to Mr. 
F. M. Nichols, a member of the British and American Archaeological 


OxroBD, Augutt, 1911.

In the Preface the editor has shown how the MS. here published was 
ascertained to be the long-lost work on Rome by John Capgrave. My con- 
nexion with it has been confined to: (1) an examination of the MS., with 
a suggestion as to its date and orthography ; (2) ad?ice as to the method of 
editing it; and (3) an investigation as to whether it can claim to be an 
actual autograph of the author. 

1. The MS. 2322 (Bodley MS. 423), 1 + 416 leaves of parchment and 
paper, 272 x 197 mm., is a composite volume containing five MSS.,' of which 
the Capgrave is the last ; but as the other four came as a donation from 
Dr. W.Cotton, Bishop of Exeter, in 1605, and were bound together with it 
by Sir Thomas Bodley's orders, they need not be considered here. It is to 
be regretted that our MS. was then considerably cut down both in length 
and breadth to match the other four, hence its marginalia are now incom- 
plete, and the original pagination was so cut away that it had to be refoliated 
as ff. 355-414. At present it consists of eight quires of eight parchment 
leaves ; the third one lacks its middle four leaves, and the last one has one 
missing leaf; the rest of the MS. is now lost. It bears on its first page the 
title ' Stations of Rome ' in Bodley's handwriting. 

There are no signs of Norfolk provenance in the rest of the volume ; the 
only name added in our MS. is that on f. 387 v of Warner, a common Norfolk 
name, but there is nothing to show what connexion he had with the MS. 

(a) Date of the toork. Dr. Fumivall (Early English Text Society, vol. c, 
p. viii) has suggested that it was at some date after 1422 and before e. 1437, 
when he settled down to write his Annals, that Capgrave went to Rome and 
was there in his illness helped by Bishop Qrey. These dates, however, are 
not consistent with the bishop's movements, for his sojourn in Italy was 
mostly after 1442, and he did not take up his abode in Rome until 1449. 
This date fits in admirably with that assigned by the editor to our MS., 
viz. c. 1460. 

(6) Orthography. The present MS. adds considerably to our knowledge 
of the Middle English of the fifteenth century ; for an account of this, the 
reader is referred to the recent editions of two of John Capgrave's other 

> I am much indebted to Mr. Madan for allowing me to lee hit copy for the next Tolume 
of the Summary Catalogue, 



English works in vols, c And cxl of the Early English Text Society, and 
to the OloBMry at the end of vol. i of the Rolls Series. A further notice 
of Capgrave's English can be seen in Joltn Capgrave und dit englieehe 
Sehrififpraehe, a doctor's diaputatioii hy William Dibelius, Friedrich- 
Wilhelma University, Berlin, 1899. 

2. I have saggestod that the practice of the Early English Text Society 
shoald be retained aa to the use of the \i and the ;, in the typograpliical 
reproduction of the final g, H, iD, and ?, and in the universal use, aa In the 
MS. of u for v ; but as to punctHatioii I felt that the custom of the 
MS. should be invariably retained; it may occasionally be defective and 
misleading, and, to our minds, it is always incomplete, but I thiak that the 
small additional effort demanded of the reader ia preferable to an arbitrary 
editorial trampling on the transcription of the text. For the same reason 
I have not advised thiLt hvphens should be inserted between adverbs and 
their adjectives, or between t»yo words which ore now joined together, such 
as on to, wttfi in, be for, for the MS. in very few instances lessens iu tlieir 
case the space betweeo the weirds, and capital letters are not used for such 
words where only modern custom demands them, unless the test gives some 
warranty for their u»e. 

The text of the MS. iu every case treats the final syllables of words ending 
in -ion, such as ojipoittion, petition, Tneditation, religion (cf. Early English 
Text Society, vol. cil, p. 61), as wiitten -tou witli contraction mark for n 
over the u and not as -ion. The u and n of the MS. are pi-actically identical 
in form ; the letter is here written as intended by the scribe, and the example 
of the Early English Text Suciety, vol. cxxii, pp. 510, &c, which prints Eiuaa 
for Eneaa because the second letter looks more like a u than an n, has not 
been followed. I am aware that in this advice I am departing from the 
usual modem practice, but the exact transcription of the text appears to me 
to be of more importauce than an attempt to render it more intelligible to 
some of its reotlers. 

3. The question as to John Capgrave's autograph is more difficult than 
appears at first sight; it has been seriously compromised hy the fact that 
almost without exception every early MS. of his writings has been called his 
autograph by recent editors and cataloguers. For convenience of reference 
these MSS. are here recited: —

The article on John Capgrave in the Dictionary of NationeUt Biography 
applies the term ' autograph ' to 1, 5, 8, 10, and perhaps 7. This statement 
is apparently founded on Preb. HLngeston-Randolph's Introd. to Nos. 1 and 
7 in the Rolls Series, vol. vii, pp. li, 124, 183, 211 \ and vol. i, pp. xiii, xvi, 
XX, xxvi, 356, and is accepted by Dr. Furnivoll, Early English Text Society, 
vol. c (1893), pp. xiii, xiv, xviii, and by Dr. Horstmann, Nova Legenda 
Angliae (Oxford, 1901), vol. i, p. Ixviii, who includes in the list of auto- 
graphs No. 11. The Catalogue of Additions to the MSS. in the British 
Museum, MDCCCC-MDCCCCV (\W7), p. vii, speaks of No. 2 as 'auto- 
graph ', and states that ' the hand, both of text and corrections, agrees with 
that ' of No. 8, ' which there seems to be adequate reason for regarding as 
Capgrave*s MS.,' and refers to the Dictionary of National Biography for 
several other of his works occurring in the same hand. The latest editor of 
Capgrave, Mr. J. J. Munro, in his Introd. to the Lives of S. Augustine, 
S. Gilbert, &c. (Early English Text Society, vol. cxl (1910), p. iz), states that 
No. 2 is in Capgrave's own hand, with his characteristic orthography, and 
contains the author's corrections in the text. 

Mr. E. W. B. Nicholson, Bodley's Librarian, in an insertion in Mr. F. 
Madan's Summary Catalogue of Western MSS., &c, vol. vi, Pt. I, states that 
* The companion Genesis ', i.e. No. 5, * shows that the Exodus ' (No. 6) pur- 
chased for the Bodleian in January, 1907, 'is in Capgrave*s own hand.' 
Similar conceptions can be seen in K. K. Yickers, Humphrey Duke of 
Gloucester (London, 1907), * the original copy is at Oriel'; and Dr. M. R, 

> 'The style of the writing of Cambridge, Qg. 4. 12, corresponds very closely with that 
of those MSS. of Capgrave which are known, by nnmistakable evidence, to have been 
written by his own hand. ... A comparison of all the extant MSS. leaves no doubt as to 
the identity of the author's handwriting and which of them are autographs ' (Rolls Series, 
vol i, p. xxvi). * The writing of No. 1 corresponds exaetiy with that of Nos. 4, 7, 8, 10. 
Two at least of these MSS. contain good, though not strictly conclusive, evidence that they 
are in the handwriting of their author ' (RolU Series, vol. vii, p. li).

Double, however, arom aa to the Btatement iti the Introduction to 7%$ 
Chronicle of England, BoIIb Seriea, vol, i, p. 356, that the lianiiwritiDg of 
Nu. 4 (the frngmentB of the Quide to the Antiquities of Borne) was ' identical 
with that of the Engliab Chronicle and the other worke of John Cnpgrave, of 
which we possess the autographs', and Prof Napier's letter of May 16, 
1 892 (Early English Text Society, vol. c, p. ssxlv), proved that ' neither the 
fly-leaves of All Souls' 17 nor the body of that MS. are iu the same hand as 
the CBmbridge University MS. of the Chronicle ; all three are different '. 

Doubts, too, have been expressed an to the validity of the argument founded 
on the use of the eo-called autograph which furius the colophon at the end 
of several MSS., /"eftViter jvr./oAn royj/rww, and of the trefoil-shaped mono- 
gram which is assumed to be Ibe private niaik of the author, which eilber 
nccumpsiiies the colophon or occurs in the margin of some of the MSS. 

The present seemed to be an appropriate time to investigate the above 
rtatementa, and to aBcertain, if possible, exactly how many MSS. are John 
CapgTBve's itutogr&ph. It has been my privilege to compare at the same 
time all the MSS. at Oxford, Nos. 3-6, 7, 9, 10, and to examine the two at 
Cambridge, Nos, I, 8, and the one at the British Museum, No. 2 — in fact, 
all the poisible ' autographs' of Capgrave with the exception of No, 11 — 
wilh the following results: — 

(i) The Itome fragments, No. 4, are scarcely (cf. Bolls Series, vol. i, 
p. 356) ' only first and rough copies ', aud that Ihit is the cause of the 
' universal carelessness of the spelling, and the incompleteness of many of 
the sentences'. My impression is that these leaves foimed part of a latt 
copy which must have been made from dictation, for no other explanation 
seems to account for the entirdy different spelling, e.g. my for tey, iiluer 
for tilvi/r, eonqutite for conqn/egl, tcktmea for se/nr ntrki», &c. ; a copy which 
liaa no words underlined and no initial letters inserted in colour, but waa 
left unfinished and rejected as only fit for fly-leaves of other MSS, No one 
can take np our present US. and compare it with the two fragments without 
being struck by its great superiority and accuracy. (Some of the errors ia 
the fragments ea printed in the Bolls Seiies, No. 7, ai e due not to the scribe ' 
but to the transcriber, who hue turned ' ehristes birth ' into ' giftes such ', hiis 
omitted (he word ' puemm ' which is necessary for the scansion of a hexa- 
meter, and has printed ' exameron ' as ' epistolarium '.) 

(ii) ftlieiUr per John Cajigrace, which forms the colophon in Not, 1, 
6-7, 9-1 1, is, Judging by the form of the letters a, I, p, the work of at leait 



four or fire different uribos; !ti poBition variea, for it occara either as 
> lepsr&te clause, attaclied to or wparate from the text of the eorpui libri, 
or »8 part of the Ineepit, &o., or na FtUciler ouly. In tbe preacntation 
copiea to Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, and Bishop Grey, Nos. 5-7, which 
I believe to have been written by profeaaional copyislH. these words are 
undoubtedly by the hand of Ihe copyiat. The expreaaion is doubtleaa derived 
from the author's colophon in the original copy, aa we lilial) aee in the De 
illtuMbut Jlenrieii, No. 1, hut it was retained and copied more or less 
exactly by subsequent acribea. Thus Genesis and Eiodus. though the work 
of the same copyiat, differ in that the former uses Ftlidur only whilst the 
Utter has F. ]i. J. C. The argument founded ou the occurrence of these 
vorxls has been unduly forced, for Ihey do not bear the interpretkUon 
Dsually assigned to them. 

(iii) The trefoil mark occurs in Nos, I, 5-11, either in block or red; its 
shape varies considerably, being either witli or without a. atalk, the ehape of 
which is seldom made in the same way. It la foand occasionally in the 
margina of some M8S., in places which do not seem to have called for special 
notice, except that it is affixed to the year of the author's birth, to his 
personal opinion, ' we think that ', and to references to the resurrection. It 
is aleo used in connexion with, either before or after, the Fdieiter jttr John 
Cap^rave. It used to be called the private monogram of John Capgrave, 
bnt recent editors have felt that this is an unsafe argument, e. g. Air. Munro 
(Early English Text Society, vol. cxl, p. 10), ' the monogram itself is not 
infallible, nor is the Fttieiltr, &c., for both of these were liable to be copied ' ; 
and Prof. Napier writes (loc. cit.), ' the sign may have been copied from the 

(iv) What authority have such ezprenioQa aa Inctpit . . . hoe optu . . . « 
ficiljinem ^jutdem, as found in the Oenesis and the Exodus 1 Do they 
necessarily refer to the copying of the MS. and not to the composition of the 
work itself! The use of the third persou instead of the first, snd of hoc opus 
instead of hune librum, though not conclusive, ia at least suggestive; 
I bcHevB that in mo»t cases the original colophon in the author's copy was 
copied by the transcriber, without any intention of mit'leading or fear of 
misapprehension. As a matter of fact, of how many mediaeval authors do 
we possess the ipsiitima tcripta 1 They wrote either rough notes or rough 
eopy, occasionally they made a fair copy, but as a rule this was done by 
professional scribes, who pi-oduced the exemplar which served for others in 
other scriptorium. Unless a MS. giyes us, either by some 
•xpresaion in the text or by its known handwriting, Eome evidence to the 
oontrary, no copy of any work should be regarded as written by the author. 


(v) Of the ten MS8. examined, three are the work of one scribe, two 4 
another, bat the remaiiiing 6ve are due to difTerent copyiBtB. It U t 
that the dates of the works copied extend from 143B to 1461, jet, especial 
in the hirger MSS., most of them show signs of a common scriplonum by tl 
ruling of the lines, tiie underlining in red, and the scroll mark at the end a 
the quires ; one can detect the same illuminators and the eame revtsen 
but the writing itself varies considerably, being either an cccieeiaatical si 
(preferred for the Latin IISS.), occasionally bodJy formed, or the ti3tu 
English sci'tpt of the fifteenth century; in the case of the Genesis, Ezodu 
and Acts both are employed. 

(vi) The same scribe probably copied Noa. 5 and 6, the Genesis i 
Exodus; both MSS. have for the Bible text a larger script than t 
employed for the Expoiilto, and at first sight the hands seem dissimilar (of 
especially No. 6, f. 75 r), but there is no reason why difference of parchmentjl 
of pen, and of ink may not account for this. Hence, though a second scribi 
is suggested by the different position of the Fclieiler and by the varyi 
words of the IncejiU, &c., I atlribute to the same trained copyist both thei 
presentation copies to Duke Humphrey. 

(vii) There is one MS., however, which is undoubtedly the autograph o 
John Capgrave : No, 1 , the De iltuitribu* Uenricia at Corpus Christi Colleg^l 
Cambridge. At pp. 135, 138, where the author gives the title and inctpiffl 
of ceiiain works which he bad seen, he uses a thicker pen or darker ink inl 
order to make these I'tMipit more prominent; but for the last example biflfl 
memory failed him, and be inserted later on, in a third quality of ink,' ' iani.'l 
non recorder qwrntara ad man»« non est.' There is no change whatever ial 
the handwriting. This proof of autograph seems decisive and uuanswerable ;< 
no one but Capgrave himself could have inserted these words. (The English 1 
words on p. 1 OS, ' make no space but writh forth invdcato ' (see Rolls Series, J 
vol. vii, p. U), a direction for some future copyist, may be and in fact seentl 
to be the work of a subsequent reviser, but the ' corrige librum quia erronee j 
scribifur' on p. 83 is apparently by the author.) 

With this MS. before us, we ore able to point out two others which \(Tm 
the rules of Iheir Libraries cannot be compared side by side, but whidtl 
a careful examination of each letter proves to be by Capgrave faimseUL \ 
These are : 

(a) No. 2. British Museum, Add. MS. 36704, which the Catalogue rightly J 
calls ' autograph ', but it unfortunately quotes as a similar hand No. 8, thfl I 
Cambridge University copy of Tht CItronicle; the alphaliot, however, of this I 

' Kimilu chan^orquftlity or ink caa be Bceu on pp. 1I3-9S; the MS. cleirljr wu not 4 
tli wrilUn at one tiuie ; cf. p|i, US, 111. 


MS. in at least eight letters, a, h, d, h, k, I, m, to, is entirely difiPerent, This 
can be seen by a comparison of the facsimiles in Early English Text Society, 
vol. cxly and in the Rolls Series, vol. i. 

No. 2 bears some evidence on the fly-leaf, f. 3 r, as to the author : * 'hlcigtsUr 
lohannes Capgrave conuenttM linn fectt istum li6rum ex precepto uniu« 
gen^rose.' The expression facere lihnim (not optu) seems to refer to the 
writing of the MS. ; hence, with the palaeographical evidence before me, I 
share the opinion of Mr. Munro, who apparently had not seen the Corpus 
MS., that No. 2 is a holograph of Capgrave's. 

(6) The MS. now edited, A comparison of the collotype of f. 38 7r of this 
MS., here printed, with that of No. 2 (Early Elnglish Text Society, vol. cxl) 
leaves no doubt as to their both having been written by the same man ; the 
words augtistinuB (augustyn), ordre (orde?), tittled (entytled), seynt, /^er, and 
whech occur on both facsimiles ; the words ' concordia * aud * ye ^ere of ou? 
lord a mccccxij ' of our collotype can be seen on ff. 116, 117 of the British 
Museum MS. It appears to me that the identity is indisputable. 

(viii) Judging by Dr. Furnivairs account (Early English Text Society, 
vol. c, pp. xliv, xlv), the MS. at Cheltenham would appear to be an 

(ix) There is, however, another source of evidence open to us : the script 
of contemporary or early revisers of the text. Did John Capgrave correct 
any of the MSS. which he did not write himself, and if he did, may not his 
autograph appear in the margins or between the lines of their text I One 
would naturally expect corrections by the author of a pi^esentation copy of 
any of his works, in order that the accuracy of the copy should be guaran- 
teed, but in the MSS. before us each one without exception bears some 
witness in this sense (later additions do not concern us), and the writing of 
at least three or four revisers can be made out. 

Taking them in order and summarizing my notes, I find that — 

No. 1 . In almost every page Capgrave has inserted words above the line 
with a red sign (/\) below, and in the margins ; I see no trace of any other 

No. 2. Nearly all the corrections are due to the scribe himself. 

No. 3. The text has frequently been altere<l by erasures or by a red 
deleting line, without any advisory indications in the margin. This is what 
one would expect if the author were personally revising his own writing. 

No. 4 was left in its impeifect state. 

Nos. 6 and 6. Both MSS. were carefully looked over by some one who 
inserted in red (in the margin and between the lines of the text) words 
which weie to be altered or inserted ; where the words erroneously written 




in the text were bo many tliat aa erasure was impossible, va . , , eat is 
writteu at their beginning and end. These temporary renilings were almost 
always erased ns soon aa they had served their purpose and the original 
scribe hud inseiled tbem io tlie text. Theae corrections are naturotly fewer 
in the Exodus than in the Genesis. To Capgrave may possibly be ascribed 
the words ' contra sacerdotea tfrrarios ' (!) in the Geuesis, chapter 45 — they 
are not a correction of the text, but are apparently the expression of the 
aathor calling attention to its purport. 

No. 7 has very few alterations, all apparently by the first hand — tbc ' in 
ydiomate' in the margin of Acts, chapter 21, is preceded by the red line and 
point (1.) which occurs five times in oar MS. 

No. 8 has been carefully revised by the original scribe. 

No. 9. Capgrave'a hand is probably to be xeen in the margins of ff. 6 v, 
49 V, 1 1 1 r (in the latter page the red I. appears) ; the other few corrections 
are either by the original scribe, or by the reviser of the All Souls MS. 

No. 10. On pp. 175, 204 I detect the hand of Capgrave, and I note that 
the reviser of No. 9 also exercised his office on this MS. ; a reference to the 
Book of Judges occurs by the same hand in All Soula, pp. 2, 77, and in 
Balliol 190, ff. 4t, 42r; 'iste B.;mo ' &c., All Souls, p. 60, 13 by the scribe 
who wrote ' idem sermo est ' in Bulliol 190, f. 33 r, but the ' Iterwxi Sim- 
boliuit hugonis ' of p. 4 is, as in No. 9, apparently by Capgrare. 

But a discussion of such details ivotJd lead us too fai' ; they are only 
B corollary to the endence that we have produced as to the autograph of 
Capgrave beingfoundinthree MBS.: C.C.C.Camb.408, B.M. Add. MS. 36704, 
and in the volume now under examination — but in the text of no other MS.

^ Oar auihor appean to have fallen into an error here, as he is confusing the Porta 
Collatina with the Porta CoUina, which latter was near the Castel S. Angelo. Its 
position is mentioned in the Ordo Romanus. It appears to have closed the bridge, 
opposite the Castel S. Angelo, from the Leonine city (Nichols, Marvels of Borne, p. 168, 
n. 892). Adinol6 calls this gate the Porta di S. Pietro in Adriano, and adds : * Fh appel- 
lata eziandio Porta CoUina senza aver riguardo a questi edifizi* (S. Peter's and the 
Vatican), ' ma solo ai colli Vaticani. Fh una delle due porte Aurelie, secondo quel che 
dime Prooopio, e dall* essere di bronzo corrottamente veniva chiamata dello Brnnoso, cio^

ehazton di moUi palazzi, &o., Venice, 1480, p. B iii). 

' The gate of S. Pancrazio was also called the Porta Aorea (Adinolfi, vol. i, p. 188).

in 1250 ItmoceDt IV gave it tn the Fnnoiican Order ; previotia to thi> date it had t»en 
bald by Benediotines. It wai reconitrttcted by Paul III, who connected it with tita 
Palauo Veaexia by means or a covered tray (oaly recently deatrojed). along tbe Via Uella 
Pedacchin and the Via della Bipresa. The tower of Paul III and a grett pnrt of the 
convent have been deitroyed to make room for the monument to Viator Emanuel 
(AnueUini, p. S7S ; Marucchi, p. SS8i Nibby, p. 341). Our chronicler must have connted

Men, in Plate IV, that tbe mansoleum and the tower by the gate are both marked : and, la

' The church of S. Crocs in GeniB&lemiDc wan founded by (ion itwi tine, in tlie fourth 
century, ia Falatio StsioriaHo ; vhich palace, in otusictl limee, wae near the gilacs 
qf public eiecutioQ, MwMOobi thinJu that S. Helena m»j have li»ed in the paUce, 
wbicb wu at that time joined to tho lAtsran, and tn the gardeiu ot the Edquiline. The 
church naa fonnerty known Under the title of the Batilica Sanoriaaa. ItB present name 
ii derived from the portioa of the Holy Croes placed in it iiy the Empress Helena when 
■he brought that relic tu Bome from Jeiuialem. The church was embellished in the fifth 
century b; PUcidin and VaJentinian III, and about this time the building was called the 
Satiliea ffeteniima. It was restored by Gregory II iu 720, and by Benedict VII in 
the latter part of the tenth century. The present form of the church ii due ta 
Benedict XIV. The extrmordimuy legend {which follows in the text) of a Pope being 
dismembered at hia own request at the door of the church, is due to the fnct that 
Sylvester II e:ipited. while he was celebrating Mass, on Quadrsgeaima Sunday in lOQS. 
He wai buried at 8. John Lateran. It is ponible that he may have eipresied a with 
that bis heart should be buried in the church in which he died. He was generally 
believed to have acquired magical knowledge from the Mohammedans in Spain, and the 
■omewhat gruesome legem! hu probably developed by degrees around the above data. 
His epitaph still eainti, and is quoted in full in n. 2, p. 77. Fur the origin of the name 
Smario or Seuoriiino, see AdinolG. He derives it.from the Amphitheatrum Castrense, 
which was named the Stitorian, on account of the graduated order of its steps, and gave 
its name to the neighbourhood (vol. i, p. 372). 

' S. Constaiitia, the daughter of Conslantine, bears also the title ' Augusta", She waj 
onred of a dangerous illneas at the grave of Sli. Agnes; this caused her conversion to 
Christianity. Gallicanus, a military leader, bad ashed for her hand En marriage ; but when 
he had to leave Rome for one of his campaigns, she gave him, aa cumpaniotis, her servanta 
SS. John and Paul; recei-ving into her household. In return, SS. Attica and Artemia, 
daughten of Gallicanui by a former marriage. Through her prayers they were converted 
to the Christian faith, at also was Gallicanua on his return &om victory. S- Constantia 
and her two cumpauioua took upon themselves a tow of chastity ; abe built a church and 
dwelling at the grave of S. Agues, in which she lived until her death in the fourth century 
(Btadler, flnHaen'raiton; Jeta SflBe/onim, February, vol. iii, p. 87). 

' Possibly this S. CesariuB is the saint of that name who suBered martyrdom in 
Terracina about the year 300, in the peraecution of Diocletian. The retic of bis arm

when be became a Cbri*ti>D, wa* barbarouely tortured and Snally deo^iitaled by the 
orden of the emperor. While one need not accept all the Act* regarding him, tba Litur-

tible proofa of hii eilitence and of hi* nuutyrdum. The Council held in Oxford in 1313 
ordered hi* feaet-djiy to be •olenmly kept throughout England every year (Stadler, 
Ueilii/enleiikon ; Atta Sanctorum, April, vol. Hi, p. 100).

ti. Gregory tbe Great. The monattery (which p(«ceded the church) itaa founded by 
S. Gregory in bl* own paternal home ; he alen built a church, which he attached to it 
and dedicated to S. Andiew, After hia death the mouactery waa alianiloned, but 
Gregury II rettored it, and erected atnthar church, which he dedicated to hie naraeeake. 
Thii church waa eomptetoly altervl by CanUnal 8d|Uo Burgheie in 108S. and again rebuilt

into the eea with a atone rognd ber neck. On rererring to S. Ceiuuriaus, S. Mennas is 
amongst those who suffered on the same occujon (Stailler, Btiligmltiikoi). The 
Awnymtii of Einiiedttn (ed. HfUsen), ch. liii, n. 12, p. 42, mentions a church of 
8. Menna, which Armelhni thinks was dedicated to the colebrated Egyptian martyr, 
tj. Menna*. It stood on the oelabrated portico from the Vatican to S. Paul's. Leo IV 
and Pascal I restored and adorned It, but it is not mentioned after the tenth cenlgry

Duty be uid »bout her in this place. Her full name was Flavia Julia Belena; 
the wife of Conitwitius ChloruB. >nd the mother of Cnnatuitina the Great. The date and | 
plsoeofber birth are both uncertain. KomenalboiB.eepecially the Brilieh, uy Lhatihe W

Otben fit her Iiirthplace at Trbiei. The principal reMon for accepting the fotmar I 
theory ii that Conalantine ii believed to have been boni in Britain. Bnt eren thia is 
Qncerlwn, as anme authoritiei, notnbly Pagiua and Tillemoat, uaert thnt he wii bom at 1 
NaiHiu (Niua) ID SerYia. And It is curioui that Bede never mentioni the (act of bta } 
Iwviug first aeen the light in oat country. The only certainty ia Ihnt Conatantina 
Chlonu, who wa« co-emperor n-ith Diocletian, died in Britain. Some German autboritiM 
ha™ awerted that Trives «u the birthplace of S. Helena, but the grnunde for thia I 
statement are even wmlcer than the gronnda for the firal-mentioned theory. Aa earlj I 
 the liitli century Drepana in Bithynia wat said [o be the real place where aho w 
bom, and both Nicepboma and Procopin* support thia view. Thia town waa on tha ] 
ficapboma, and was afterwanls renamed Helenopolia after the emprc^a. The probabls 
date of her birth waa A.n. 21S, and S, Anibroae — who waa a boy of tive yaara of aga 
when ConatantiuB Chlorua died— nya that abe wni of humble extraction, nnd vraa the 
manageren of a postal station when Oonstantius Snt met ber. S. Auibroee, aa the son 
of a prefect, may Tory easily ha»e heard this from his own father. Eutropiaa, an 
impeiJal private secretary, in bis Koman history status that after the death of 
Constaiitius, bis son Constnotine, bom of a humble marriage {fx obicuriore malrimonlo), 
was elected empei-or in Britain ; and he must have hnown the facU, aa he waa a Court ] 
official who Bcoompanied Julian the Apostate to Persia. Some pagan writers evi 
uaert that Constantine waa illegitimate, fili'it ipunKi, but this can bordly be true, ai 
the eUtcment ia attribiitnble to their hatred of the Cbriatian empreas. Had this been I 
the case, the ariatociKtic and proud Diocletian would hardly hnve oast hia eye as I 
Conatantiui's natural enn tu suoceed him after his death ; nor would the son have dared ] 
to call his mother Anguitii, Nor would Eameoides in hia panegyric have presumed tq J 
■>y to him : Thou hast deserved the empire through tby birth ; iiaperiun naiemuh I

Eutropins, tn spealung of this, calls ber the luor of the emperor, and uses the wor~ 
dirtmptit jpiioribui oonSngiu in (peaking of the divorce. Ccdns and inxiriptions al 
bear witness to a l^aJ union. So far aa la known, Constantlne was ber only ton. Si

 S. Stephen to Crtio MoHlf ii the ohurah on the Caeliau now known u S. Stephen 
the Round. But Uie latter name (up to the twelfth century) was giien to the unall 
round church (Temple of Veita) near the churah of S. Maria in Coonedin i 
of the Tiber, which waa 6nt dedicated to S. Stephen, and afterwarda to S. Matia del ' 
Sole. The oodei of Turin, that of Cameraiiua, as well aa that of tjignorili, all agree a 
thia point; when the chareh wa< visited by Alexander VII, we read: ' eoelem 
S. Stepbani rolundi aupia flumeu.' But afler tho name waa changed, the term rviundii* 
waa applied to the church on the Caelian. The dale of the conatcuction of the latter la I 
the subject of aome coutroieny. It is aaid to liava been built by Pope Simplidaa ir 
fifth century. Armellini doei not agree with tbuae who believe the building b 
otiginally pagan, but i« of opinion that it la a Christian work, both in plan and

' There ii aoiDe confusion about S. Judas Quiriacui (Cyriacai)i Bishop of JeroBalem. 
He wai probably not the S. Cyriacus converted by S. Helena, and said to have been 
martyred by Julian the Apoetate ; it is known that there was no bis)u>p of that name in 
Jerusalem in Julian's time. Some authors therefore make him Biahop of Ancona, where 
be is now the |)atron saint of the city. But there was a Bishop Judas— who was killed 
in a rising of the Jews about the year 183 — under the Emperor Hadrian. He )>ossibly 
assumed the name Quiriaous, on account of the detestation in which his own name was 
held by Christiana. He is mentioned by Theodorioos Pauli as having suffered martyrdom 
in Hadrian*! reign (Stadlar, ffeiligenlerikon', Acta Sanctorum, May. vol. i, p. 439). 

' S. Giovanni a Porta Latina is a very ancient church, founded by Pope Gelasius I in 
the fifth century, rebuilt by Hadrian I in 772| and again restored in the twelfth and 
sixteenth centuries. According to Greedmbeni {Storia di 8. Giovanni a porta Latina, 
p. 208 sq.), Leo II attached it to S. John Lateran. From Lucius II to Boni&ce VIII 
it belonged to the Benedictines ; it was then transferred to the Trinitarians, and now 
belongs to French Franciscans (Armellini, p. 272 ; Marucchi, p. 170 ; Duchesne, Liber 
Pontificalitt p. 508; Nibby, p. 269).

' S. Nereas and Achilleoa were servant! of Flavia Domitilla, and were baptized by 
S. Peter together with her, her mother Plautilla^and two maidf . The cause of their martyr- 
dom appears to have been their conversion of their mistress, who was betrothed to one 
Aurelian. She was in the habit uf spending much time on her toilet and the care of her 
person ; one day Nereus said to her : * O Domitilla, how happy wouldst thou be, wert 
thou to spend as much time in beautifying thyself for thy heavenly bridegroom.' Tliis 
speech impressed the maid, and eventually she joined the Christian faith, taking vows of 
lifelong chastity. All three were exiled to Ponsa near Terracina, and were martyred 
there by the Consul Memmius Rufui*. Their bodies were brought to Rome by S. Auspicius, 
and buried on the property of S. Domitilla in the Via Ardentina (Stadler, HeiUtf$nlex%kon ; 
Act<i Sandorum, May, vol. iii, p. 4 ; vol. vii, p. 707). 

' ? peter. 

* Hie church of S. Prisca is believed to be on the site of the honse of Aquila and 
Prisca, where S. Peter is said to have preached and baptised. The Tituhu Aqailae 
et PrUcae is found in the fifth century, and an abbey of Greek monks was attached to it 
lat«r. The church was consecrated by Pope S. Eutic^ianus in 280, restored by Hadrian I 
in 772, and by Calliztus III about 1466. Cardinal Giustiniani repaired it from the 
designs of Carlo Lombardo of Areno; finally, Clement XII altered it to its present form 
in 1784 (Armellini, p. 660; Nibby, p. 676; Mamochi, p. 180).
