Type of Resource:
Description:
Written by a single scribe who carefully corrected his errors; changes by at least one nearly contemporary and one later writer.
Bookblock chewed by rodent in upper right corner; margins of many leaves trimmed resulting in some loss of text, marginalia, and catchwords.
Phillipps nos.: 7220 and 9302
Abstract:
Manuscript on parchment (thick, furry) of the Wycliffite New Testament. Begins imperfectly in Matthew 3.4 and breaks off at 1 Timothy 1.15; also missing Romans 9.22 to 1 Corinthians 1.23 (2 bifolios lost after f. 73). Contains the Gospels without prologues, and the Epistles with prologues. The text has been altered in places by a near contemporary hand that has written over erasures. Since the alterations correspond to those adopted in the later edition of John Purvey, MS 125 may reflect an intermediate stage between the Wycliffite Bible and Purvey's version.
