The life of Christina of Markyate, a twelfth century recluse by C. H Talbot( Book )
3 editions published between 1959 and 1987 in English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
"The Life of Christina of Markyate, a twelfth-century English recluse and later abbess of Markyate, near St A1bans, is a remarkable example of late medieval hagiography. Originally written at the time of or soon after Christina's death in the twelfth century, the Life is unusual both in its relative lack of miracles, and in the unknown author's decision to write Christina's life factually rather than gathering together stock elements from previously written saint's lives, as was the custom." "First published in 1959, this edition contains the original Latin text with a facing-page English translation. It is accompanied by a comprehensive introduction that discusses the codicological problems of the text, and provides other contextual and background material."--Jacket

2 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 114 libraries worldwide
The Mudil Codex from the late 4th century contains the Biblical Psalms in Coptic. However, the text differs significantly from familiar versions of the Psalms, giving rise to the question of whether we are dealing with an original form of the text. The comprehensive analysis presented here demonstrates the tradition in which this fascinating text is located, how it arose, and what significance it has for research into the Psalms generally and the Coptic Bible manuscripts in particular
