Text name Trinity Homilies
File name cmtrinit-mx1
Manuscript Trinity College 335 (B.14.52), Cambridge
Date a1225 (?OE) (Laing: C12b)
Dialect East Midlands (London), "influenced by immigration, perhaps from East Anglia" (M.L. Samuels, cited in Hill)
Genre Homily
Edition Morris, Richard. 1873. Old English homilies of the twelfth century. Second series. EETS O.S. 53. London: Trübner.
Sample Exhaustive

The manuscript is in three hands: A, B and C. Hands A and B are scattered through the manuscript up to page 217.22 in Morris (see Laing for details). Hand C is responsible for pages 217.22 to 219 (end). Five sermons are shared with the Lambeth Homilies as follows:

Trinity iv = Lambeth vii
T xxvi = L xiii
T xxxii = L xv
T xxx = L xvi
T xxv = L xvii

According to Wells, the source is likely to be a 12th century collection of Latin sermons by a French or Norman rather than an Anglo-Saxon (although he gives no reason). Perhaps some of the collection is original. The sample consists of all the homilies. The parse is based on Morris's translation.
