Item description for Saga Heilagrar Onnu by Kirsten Wolf...

Saga heilagrar Onnu, is a translation of the Low German version of the Legend of St. Anne, Sunte Annen legend und all oeres geschlechtes, a text printed by Hans Dorn in Braunschweig in 1507 and commonly referred to as the St. Annen B?chlein. The Icelandic text survives fragmentarily in two manuscripts, dated to 1550-1575 and 1600-1650 respectively. The translation was in all likelihood made sometime in the first half of the sixteenth century, possibly at the Episcopal seat of Hlar. This edition includes the text of both surviving manuscripts with corresponding Low German text on facing pages. The introduction contains a full palaeographic and orthographic description of the manuscripts, as well as a discussion of the cult of St. Anne and its transmission in Iceland.
