 This volume contains a critical edition of two previously unedited anonymous poems, the Liber prefigurationum Christi et Ecclesie and the Liber de gratia Novi Testamenti.   Both works seem to have been written in France during the reign of King Philip I (1060-1108). The Liber prefigurationum is a compendium of biblical typology. It versifies the most salient episodes of the Old Testament, from Genesis to Maccabees, as prefiguring the incarnation of Christ and the foundation of the Christian Church. The Liber de gratia presents the life of Christ from the point of view of its significance for all believers. Both poems are meant to educate their readers and guide them on their journey towards moral improvement and ultimate salvation.
