Notes

Abstract: This research examines an excerpt of a confessional narrative in an early 15th century manuscript known as Cambridge, Magdalene College, Pepys 2125 again 'The Clensyng of Mannes Sowle, found in Oxford, Bodleian Library, Bodley 923. A manual on penance, the 'Clensyng' will soon be published in a modern edition. As an Undergraduate Research Fellow to the editor of this project, I hypothesized that Pepys' contents belonged to the 'Clensyng's confession section. I typed the Pepys excerpt into a Word document and compared it to complete transcription of the Clensyng from the Bodley manuscript. Contrary to my expectations, I discovered that the scribe of Pepys 2125 paraphrased only parts of this narrative from the Clensyng. These findings challenge the assumption that Pepys holds a 'Clensyng' excerpt and suggest that other sources of the confessional narrative exist. My poster will highlight these findings and will reproduce three manuscript pages I have studied.
