Scragg (eds), Apocryphal Texts and Traditions in Anglo-Saxon England, Publications of the Manchester Centre for Anglo-Saxon Studies, 2 (Cambridge, ), , at ; and ‘Psalm ’, in Frederick M. Biggs (ed.), Sources of Anglo-Saxon Literary Culture: The Apocrypha, Instrumenta Anglistica Mediaevalia, 1 (Kalamazoo, ),   Biblical apocrypha feature prominently across this corpus of literature, as Anglo-Saxon authors clearly relied on a range of extra-biblical texts and traditions related to works under the umbrella of what have been called “Old Testament Pseudepigrapha” and “New Testament/Christian Apocrypha.”.

      The work is apparently mentioned in Æthelwold's donation of books to the monastery at Peterborough; see Lapidge, M., ‘Surviving Booklists from Anglo-Saxon England’, in Learning and Literature in Anglo-Saxon England: Studies presented to Peter Clemoes on the Occasion of his Sixty-Fifth Birthday, ed. Lapidge, M. and Gneuss, H. (Cambridge Cited by: 5. The Apocryphal Old Testament was originally planned as a companion volume to M. R. James The Apocryphal New Testament, first published as long ago as When, in the mids, the stocks of R. H. Charles wellknown two-volume work, The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament (), were running low there was discussion at the Press about what should be done.

    The apocryphal texts that circulated in the Anglo-Saxon period held different status and appeal for different writers. The apparent popularity of such apocryphal narratives as the Visio Pauli (which in its various redactions provides a possible source for Guthlac A, the Vision of Leofric, and several homilies found in the late tenth-century Vercelli and Blickling manuscripts) would seem to. This book is the first to describe the transmission of the Vulgate Old Testament in Anglo-Saxon England. Following an introduction that explains the wider continental history in which the dissemination of the scriptures occurred, Richard Marsden analyzes nineteen surviving Latin manuscripts and further translations of scripture into Old English.
