18-01-25: UPenn Ms Roll 1563


On January 25, we continued transcribing Ms Roll 1563 in preparation for the upcoming Digital Editing and the Medieval Manuscript Roll workshop. This meeting’s highlights included marveling at just how many letters in a word that scribes felt they were licensed to abbreviate, Amey Hutchins teaching us (among a thousand other things) the importance of the Levation during mass for the lay public, and the very relatable prayer “O sweet pie, o Jesus son of Mary”*
