Sample text

Tiberius C. i + Harley 3667 and St. John’s College 17 have three each. The Sphere in the medical volume Sloane 475 is an exception, but that may have to do with the origin of the texts (see pp. 42-43). 26 Wallis (1985; 1995: 122-27) made an outstanding analysis of the contents of this manuscript and the position of the texts. 23 TH E M ANU SC RIPT CONTEX T 31 copied because of its similarity to scientific diagrams: the Apuleian Sphere lacks both the explanatory text and the lists of letter and weekday values that usually accompany the diagram.

49 See pp. 200, 202, 204, 206, pl. 3-6. 36 C HAPTER TW O Four Computi containing Old English Prognostics Most of the findings pertaining to prognostics in computi were gathered from computi containing Latin prognostics. Without this Latin material, our perspective would have been distorted since relatively few vernacular prognostics have survived from the Anglo-Saxon period. There is, for instance, only one Latin Apuleian Sphere with a partial Old English gloss,50 which, if limited to this attestation, would have discouraged an analysis of Apuleian Spheres in Anglo-Saxon manuscripts.

Of both Winchester and Byrhtferth’s computi there are more manuscripts containing Apuleian Spheres, none of which have the figures of Life and Death other than Tiberius C. vi and Harley 3667. In this case, vertical text transmission took place, whereas lateral transmission did not occur. The example illustrates that prognostics moved from one type of computus to the next but were not necessarily copied into other manuscripts of the same type of computus. It is conceivable that there are prognostics which show lateral transmission.
