The James Catalogue was digitized then marked up following the TEI P5 Guidelines. The customized model was provided by Giuliano Di Bacco, stored in an ODD file (parkerweb.xml): the latter was written by GDB using ROMA vers. 2.x, with manual adaptations. The ODD file is used as a source to compile the actual schema used to validate the xml: it is advisable to compile it in RelaxNG sintax (parkerweb.rnc) through ROMA.

Old English Homilies, mostly by Ælfric(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Homiliae Saxonicae (IV)
Codicology:Vellum, 270 x 185 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) (10.6 x 7.2 in.), ff. 2 + 394, mostly 26 but in one part 23 lines to a page. Cent. x-xi, in very various hands.
Collation: 18 (+ frontispiece) 28-188 196 2010 218-248 2510 268-308 316 328-468 476 484 498 5010 (wants 10).
Provenance:From Worcester: see below.
Provenance:The book is copiously glossed in Latin throughout, and chiefly by the same curious tremulous hand which has annotated MS 12 and MS 178. This must mean that in cent. xii the three books MS 12, MS 178 and MS 198 were in the same monastery. That the monastery in question was Worcester admits of no doubt. See on MS 12. The same hand appears in MSS. at Oxford which are clearly from Worcester.
Decoration:There is a frontispiece (f. iir), a drawing in outline with shading in red and faint purple. The style is good, but not the best Anglo-Saxon. The picture represents six apostles, nimbed and richly draped, in two rows of three. In the upper row the first on L. has a book, and his legs are crossed, the second (Andrew) holds a short sceptre terminating in a cross set in a circle, the third (Peter) beardless holds book and key and turns to R. In the lower row the first has pen and book, the second with crossed legs addresses the third who holds up a pair of tablets: all three are beardless.
Additions:On f. iiv a list (cent. xvi) of contents, headed: “Quartus liber” .
On f. iiir an old list (xi) of contents. The original hand goes from “i. Sermo in natale domini” to “xxxi. Non. mai. inuentio s. crucis” .
The hand of the principal annotator (xii?) continues the list to no. “lx. sancti andree” .
At top of f. 1r in large red letters (xvi) is: “Aelfricus abbas transtulit” .
