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.

Prudentius
Codicology:Vellum, 245 x 180 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College), (9.6 x 7.2 in.), ff. 2 + 168, 34 lines to a page. Cent. ix-x (Bradshaw), in good Caroline minuscule: two hands at least. In the first part of the book, initials of lines are filled with red and green alternately.
Collation: a2 18 (wants 1) 28-58 610 710 | 88-208 214 | one leaf which should follow quire 20 |.
Provenance:Given by Daniel Rogers, whose name is at each end and in the cover. Evidently it was once at St Bertin's Abbey (or an English dependency of that abbey).
Research:This MS. is mentioned by Traube, Nomina Sacra, p. 232, as being one of those in which the contraction nrt for noster is occasionally used. “We find it,” he says, “from cent. ix to xi at Corbie, St Bertin, Reims, Troyes, Langres, Fleury and Tours.” It is also noticed by Dümmler in Neues Archiv IV 533.
Research: The Rev. J. Mearns kindly pointed out that in the Cathemerinon the Praefatio and ll. 1-3 of the Hymnus ad galli cantum are missing.(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Foliation: pp. i-ii + 1-340 + iii-iv(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
