Chapter Summary

This appendix presents information on the English manuscripts containing the prognostic text corpus, and a detailed set of data for each individual prognostic in these manuscripts. The handlist includes all Old English and glossed prognostics, many Latin ones, and some prognostics now (partly) lost. The number of Latin prognostics would probably be more than doubled were a close inspection of all extant English manuscripts of the ninth to twelfth centuries carried out. Each manuscript is introduced with the help of information provided in descriptions of manuscripts in catalogues.

Keywords: English manuscripts; Latin; prognostic text corpus
