Forshall and Madden, iv. 683-98, but the text here and in English Manuscripts 76, 77, 80 and 91 differs substantially from theirs, which goes with the earlier Wycliffite version. A table for the common of saints is not provided here or in English Manuscripts 76, 78, 80 and 91: cf. Forshall and Madden, p. 696, footnote. The commemorations precede the proper of saints as in English Manuscript 77.
