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 (V)
Codicology:Vellum, 250 x 165 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) (10 x 6.6 in.), ff. 6 + 111 + 8, 31 lines to a page. Cent. xi late?, in a clear upright rather close script. Initials of sentences filled with dabs of red.
Collation: 18-128 (wants 2) 138 148 | 154 (paper) 164 (vellum): six paper flyleaves are prefixed, and paged by Parker.
Research:T. James' entry is 275 “Homiliae 52. Saxonice” which is incorrect so far as this book is concerned: but no other identification seems possible. K.-A. Rand has identified, following R. Page's note, that M. R. James has confused T. James 272 for 275. The 52 A-S. Homilies (T. James 275) are in MS 162(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Research:This is MS. E in Skeat's Aelfric's Lives of Saints (see II, p.xiv). He uses it for the Homilies on Ash Wednesday and on Auguries. Napier uses it for no. XLIX in his Homilies of Wulfstan , calling it D.
Foliation: pp. a-f + 1-248 + g-j(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Language: Old English and Latin with some German notes and glosses (to item 31).(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
