Pitts Published in 2018 Volume of Reading Medieval Studies

A critical edition by Brent A. Pitts (Foreign Languages / Honors) of the Anglo-Norman Bible’s book of Ruth has been published in the 2018 volume of Reading Medieval Studies (U of Reading, UK). The Anglo-Norman Bible, the first prose vernacular Bible produced in England, has been largely ignored by scholars. Pitts’s publication provides a review of scholarship, describes the manuscripts of the ANB’s book of Ruth, studies the language of Ruth in the base text–London, British Library, ms. Royal 1 C III–and presents a critical edition. Hard copy of the publication will soon be available in the College Archive.
