The Sedulius of CCCC MS 173

“The Parker Register does not mention the Sedulius at all, which is perhaps surprising in view of its distinctive appearance, for it could hardly be missed by a cataloguer.” – R. I. Page (1981, pp.9-10)

1575 – The position in the MS of the Sedulius is unknown.

by 1600 – It was placed between the Chronicle and the laws (Thomas James’ Catalog).

by 1705 – It was positioned at the end of the MS. This is how it is ordered today. *Wanley (1705).

“Again at some stage the eighth-century booklet containing Sedulius’ Carmen Paschale was added to the collection, but it cannot be proven when this took place.” – M. B. Parkes (1976, p.151)
