Chapter Summary

This index section of the book titled Anglo-Saxon Prognostics, 900-1100: Study and Texts presents a list of terms and concepts. Anglo-Saxon prognostics were first published, translated and studied on an appreciable scale by the Rev. Thomas Oswald Cockayne, Max Förster and Heinrich Henel, from the second half of the nineteenth century to the first half of the twentieth century. Remarkably, these scholars did not give a definition of the genre, nor do present-day studies of prognostics. At most, the genre is described in terms of status: Förster saw prognostics as an exponent of 'Volkskunde', whereas Henel identified them as 'Mönchsaberglaube'.

Keywords: Anglo-Saxon prognostics; Heinrich Henel; Max Förster; Rev. Thomas Oswald Cockayne
