John Capgrave spent most of his life in the
Augustinian Friary at Lynn, now King's Lynn Norfolk
- only 4 saints' lives are definitely known to be his
work: those fo St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Gilbert
of Sempringham, St. Katherine of Alexandria +
St. Norbert. All 4 are in English, the last 2 in verse.
Nova Legenda Anglic - Capgrave's part
in the making of this work was probably nil.
-- a collection of 168 Saints' lives in the 1516 ed.
printed by W. de Worde. De Worde's ed. of 1516
follows the alphabetical arrangement of the
Sanctilogium + includes in addition a Prologue,
some more lives + a colophon.
- had its origin in the Sanctilogium Angliae,
Walliae, Scotiae, et Hiberniae of John, vicar
of Tynemouth (1350-63 f.) - also called
Johannes Anglicus - only manuscript of this
work in its orginal arrangement survives. 3 MSS
of a rearranged version survive. There is no means
of knowing which MSS version was used in making
the printed edition. Consequently it is impossible
to know how many lives (if any) were added to
the collection for the 1st time in the 1516 ed.

ends on fo xxxii (F2)
