Chapter Summary

This section of the book titled Anglo-Saxon Prognostics, 900-1100: Study and Texts contains a list of reference articles and books. The book is structured as follows: chapter one provides a definition of the genre and a history of the study of Anglo-Saxon prognostics. Chapter two delves into the manuscript contexts of the prognostics and offers a method to analyse the attestation of particular prognostic genres in relation to the manuscript context. Chapter three, deals with the language of the texts and the date and place of origin of the manuscripts. Chapter four places prognostics within a framework of superstition in order to facilitate an investigation of opinions on prognostication in late Anglo-Saxon England. Chapter five, finally, addresses the issue of the intended use of Anglo-Saxon prognostics.
