Editorial Practice and Texts

General Editorial Practice

All contractions, in English and Latin, have been expanded without comment.

Obvious misprints have been corrected. Spelling variants between editions have not been recorded, except where this indicates a change of usage, e.g. Lutherians, Lutherans. In scriptural quotations, Latin spellings have been regularized in accordance with modern editions of the Vulgate, e.g. quae for que; caelum for coelum.

Proper names have been given capitals, e.g. Christ, Luther, God; but not compounds, such as christen, godhede. Punctuation and paragraphing follow the first printed text, unless otherwise stated.

The text of APD follows the 1521 Wynkyn edition, with the following modifications to punctuation: the comma has been extensively, and the colon occasionally, substituted for the punctus where the sense requires it, to bring the punctuation in line with the 1554 and 1556 Caly editions, except that certain redundant instances of the comma in the latter editions have been ignored. The paragraphing remains in accordance with 1521.

There are two kinds of difference between the Wynkyn texts and the Caly editions: (1) changes of morphology or of grammar 1 (these have been recorded in the commentary); (2) alterations in the Caly texts for stylistic reasons (e.g. reversal of word order, omission or addition of an article or conjunction). For the most part these have not been recorded.

The text of CCH follows L, with corrections from C and O. Where changes in L have been followed in accordance with MS corrections, this has been noted in the commentary.

The same principles have been used in editing the text of TFS and ASC: obvious misprints have been corrected without comment and other emendations have been explained in the commentary, as have all changes in punctuation. In TFS, where 1532 gives a different word (e.g. ye instead of be), this has been noted in the commentary, even if there seems to be no doubt about the correct reading. Punctuation is as the original, with the following exceptions: full stops after exclamation and question marks have been omitted; the letter W has been
