Der Codex Vindobonensis 2681 aus dem bayerischen Kloster Wessobrunn um 1100. Diplomatische Textausgabe der Wiener Notker Psalmen, Cantica, Wessobrunner Predigten und katechetischen Denkmäler. Mit Konkordanzen und Wortlisten auf einer CD, ed. Evelyn Sherabon Firchow with the collaboration of Richard Louis Hotchkiss (Hildesheim, Zurich, and New York: Olms-Weidmann, 2009). lii + 468 pp. ISBN 978-3-487-1368-5. euro148.00.

The original volume I has a German creed and confessional formula CWessobrunner Glaube und Beichte I") after Psalm 50 (fols ? o3rb- io7vb). A German sermon on Luke x.i- 1 2 (Althochdeutsche Predigtsammlung Bi j has been added between Ps. 1 50 and the new quire containing the canticles (fol. 2i2ra-vb). There are additional sermons (Althochdeutsche Predigtsammlung Bz-^ on fols 232rb-2 35vb at the end.
