Title

Cambridge, Corpus Christi College, MS 422; The Red Book of Darley

Description

CCCC MS 422 consists of two parts, which were together by the twelfth century. The first, a tenth-century volume, contains two Old English texts about the dialogue between Solomon and Saturn, one in poetry (also found in CCCC MS 41) and one in prose. This is an example of a type of Old English wisdom literature which was influenced by Old Norse examples. The second part is a Missal, known as The Red Book of Darley because of its later provenance at the church of St Helen, Darley Dale, in the Lake District.
