For many decades the Old English homilies have been carefully studied for their theological, linguistic and historical content, but they have yet to receive their full measure of attention as literary artifacts (however odd the notion might have seemed to their authors), in part because of the extraordinary labors involved in getting acquainted with them fully. This is an index and does not contain the texts of the homilies. It is a practical and useful guide to the homilies of Ælfric, Wulfstan, and the Blickling and Vercelli codices, allowing both the researcher and the general reader to range more freely across the mental landscape of these crucial texts than has been possible before.
