About this text
IdentificationOxford, Bodleian Library, MS Bodley 549 - Part 2
MS Bodley 549 is a composite MS of the 14th and 15th centuries containing Latin texts, a number of which is concerned with the Carthusian Order. The Latin texts are in the hand of the Carthusian scribe Stephen Dodesham. This Middle English text is in a different hand and is the only piece in the vernacular (with some marginal notes in Latin). This basic didactic material is quite common but not usually presented in rhyme royal (for the latter see: See J. Dean, ‘Gower, Chaucer, and Rhyme Royal’, Studies in Philology, 88. 3 (1991), 251-275).
