Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1830 edition. Excerpt: ...A learned correspondent, to whom I am obliged for other useful hints, has suggested to me, that Fabricius, upon the authority of Ghilini, has placed the death of Joannes Lignanus in 1383. Bibl. Med. Et. in v. This furnishes an additional reason for believing that the Canterbury Tales were composed, or at least collected into a body, after that period. MACHABE, pr. n. The books of the Maccabees. 14497. 14573. MAcRoBES, pr. 11. R. 7. MACRoBIUs. 15129. Du. 284. A. F. 111. The author of the Commentary on the Somnium Scipionis of Cicero. MADDE, v. SAX. To be mad. 3559. R. 1072. MADRIAN. 13898. See the note. I have found since that the French have a Saint called M aterne. But Mr. Steevens, with much more probability, supposes, that the precious body, by which the Host swears, was that of St. Mathurin. See his story in the Golden Legende, Edit. 1527. by Winkin de Worde, 151. b. " Than toke they the precious body and enoynted it with moche reverence; and when they had layd it in the erth, on the morowe they came to the sepulture and founde the holy body above the erth nygh unto the same sepulture, and than were they all abasshed and wyst not what to do." It seems, the knightes, who had brought him out of France, had promised that, if he died on his journey, he should be sent back and buried " where as they had taken him;" and therefore his body would not stay in the ground, till it was deposited, according to promise, in France; where it afterwards worked many miracles.
