This edition, the transcription comes from Scribd, and the introduction &c. were written by me when I prepared my edition(which included formatting changes, deversification[as versification was done in recent times when making transcriptions], rubricating Jesus's words, adding the introduction, &c.).

The editing of this edition was done by me, and I undid most of the transcriber's edits JustinCB (talk) 23:57, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

@JustinCB: Is this the source of the transcription? Are your additions and revisions also published somewhere? Thanks for adding this btw, it's a great and valuable resource to have. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 20:34, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes, that's the source. I edited it by adding an introduction(which might belong on wikibooks), removing verse numbers(as the original didn't have verse numbers), divers changes partaining to formatting like formatting/adding headings, and putting the words of Christ in red. I might've published it somewhere.
I assume, if you think this is useful, you're at least semi-literate in Middle English. JustinCB (talk) 23:01, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
I'm mostly impressed that it's complete--we have so many incomplete editions it isn't even funny. It would be nice if you had a published copy that we could use as a scan backing, but I think the quality of the work is such that we can overlook unpublished edits depsite our usual policy against them. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 03:33, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
