A new and fully annotated edition of the ‘Leiden Glossary’, a key text for understanding the achievements and learning of the famous Canterbury school of the late seventh century
Michael Lapidge is Elrington-Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon emeritus (University of Cambridge), Fellow of the British Academy, and Corresponding Fellow of the Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften and of the Accademia dei Lincei. He has authored and edited more than fifty books and articles, including for the series Hagiographies, Instrumenta Patristica et Mediaeualia, and Bibliologia.
The ‘Leiden Glossary’ provides a record of the understanding and interpretation of the patristic and grammatical texts studied at the Canterbury School of Theodore and Hadrian, regarded by Bede as the high point of Christian culture in early medieval England. Each entry in the ‘Leiden Glossary’ is provided with detailed commentary on the sources consulted by the two Canterbury masters (earlier glossaries; Isidore; Eucherius) and the later uses of the glossary by compilers of the Epinal–Erfurt and Corpus glossaries. The ‘Leiden Glossary’ is thus a key witness to one of the greatest schools of learning in the early Middle Ages.
