Chapter Summary

This appendix provides a reference list of the Anglo-Saxon prognostics and the manuscripts that occur in the book Anglo-Saxon Prognostics, 900-1100: Study and Texts. Prognostics foretell the future with the help of natural phenomena, dreams, and divinatory instruments such as the alphabet or dice. The everlasting relevance of such texts lies in the fascination people which display towards knowing their own future. Foreknowledge of the future places that which has yet to happen on the same level of certainty and interpretability as the present and the past, thereby lending comfort to and providing justification for events in the future.

Keywords: Anglo-Saxon prognostics; medieval prognostic material
