Beowulf: From Oral Narrative to Written Poetry
6th Century AD the story’s setting
8th Century AD the epic was composed
End of 10th or early 11thCentury AD the epic was written down by two scribes on the
manuscript that survives today

In 1731 the manuscript survived a fire in the British Library Colton MS Vitellius A. XV. F. 132

- He ran into the fire and through the book out the window
Vitellius: Roman Empire on Colton’s shelf

includes:
- Solioquies of St. Augustine

Why are they organized this way?
Because of the way manual scripts were produced in manual script culture
If you liked a particular work you would get your scribe to copy it
You have fragments based on what you could copy at a time
