Summary
  • "Exploding the myth that the Bible was largely unknown to medieval lay folk, Book and Verse present the first comprehensive catalog of Middle English biblical literature: a body of work that, because of its accessibility and familiarity, was the primary biblical resource of the English Middle Ages." "Although the Latin Bible was not accessible to the average English-speaker, paraphrases - systematic appropriation and refashioning of biblical texts - served as a medium through which the Bible was promulgated in the vernacular. This explains why biblical allusions, models, and large-scale appropriations of biblical narrative pervade nearly every medieval genre."
  • "Book and Verse is guide to the variety and extent of biblical literature in England, exclusive of drama and the Wycliffite Bible, that appeared between the twelfth and the fifteenth centuries. Entries provide detailed information on how much of what parts of the Bible appear in Middle English and where this biblical material can be found."--Jacket
