Lollardy in Medieval Scotland?Posted: February 23, 2012
Ploughing through the marginal annotations of the Bible from the country house (promising this will be the last post on this MS for the time being), I was struck by a short comment affixed to Ezekiel 33:6-7. It was truncated by the modern binder, and currently reads:
no[n] p[o]p[u]l[u]s t[erre sed]|
This is only a [revised with a suggestion from Laura Light] tentative transcription. Abbreviations and truncation render expansions indecisive. Other options are possible, and suggestions most welcome.
The biblical location is also of importance. Ezekiel 33:6-7 discusses the watchman, who neglects to warn the people in the face of a looming threat.
I’m still working to fill in the gaps – both on the palaeography and the use of these verses in anti-Lollard polemics. More to come soon.
