The trinity seven planets


Honkapohja, Alpo (2013). The trinity seven planets. Scholarly Editing: The Annual of the Association for Documentary Editing, 34:online.

Abstract

The late medieval manuscript Trinity College Cambridge O.1.77 (henceforth Trinity O.1.77) contains a Middle English treatise on the Seven Planets, which is located as the final item in a sequence of astrological treatises and is not found in any of the related manuscripts. The manuscript dates from 1459–1460, or slightly earlier, and shares a number of texts with the so-called Sloane Group of Middle English manuscripts, which have attracted scholarly interest, because they may be evidence of systematic book production in the London metropolitan area prior to Caxton and the first printing press.Unlike other Middle English items in the manuscript, this treatise on Seven Planets has hitherto not appeared in a modern edition. The present edition will remedy the situation, contributing to the growing number of Middle English scientific and medical texts made available in scholarly editions in recent decades. Since the manuscript was connected to commercial book production in the fifteenth century, the edition will also contribute to this thriving area of scholarship.
