"On félicitera auteur et éditeur du courage qu'il a certainement fallu pour procéder ainsi à cette mise à jour" (P.-M. Bogaert, in: Revue bénédictine, 125, 2015/1, p. 204)


The present fascicle supplements the 2007 edition of the two anonymous poems Liber prefigurationum Christi et Ecclesie and Liber de gratia Noui Testamenti. It offers a number of improvements at various levels to the original edition. The main witness of the text has been re-examined, which has resulted in the uncovering of some complementary readings, especially in the Liber de gratia. A completely revised edition of this text has been printed, together with complete new indices to both poems.
