Ælfric’s Lives of Saints, Preface (Old English, Anglo-Saxon)

2.16MB. 41 audio & 0 images. Updated 2018-11-16.


This deck contains the Old English text of Ælfric’s preface to his Lives of Saints, along with a Modern English translation (a little bit archaic one though, from Skeat’s edition; trans. by Gunning, Skeat and Wilkinson) and audio files for the Old English text, read by Michael Drout. Each of these (Old English text, Modern English text, Old English audio) serves as a front side for cards. The text was divided so that each cards is short enough. This means dividing sentences into more than one card. I tried to find the best compromise between usability and keeping the syntax intact. This deck was created by Júda Ronén.
