The James Catalogue was digitized then marked up following the TEI P5 Guidelines. The customized model was provided by Giuliano Di Bacco, stored in an ODD file (parkerweb.xml): the latter was written by GDB using ROMA vers. 2.x, with manual adaptations. The ODD file is used as a source to compile the actual schema used to validate the xml: it is advisable to compile it in RelaxNG sintax (parkerweb.rnc) through ROMA.

Bible in English
Codicology:Vellum, 310 x 200 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) (12.2 x 8 in.), ff. 454, double columns of 60 and 59 lines. Cent. xv ( “perhaps before 1430” ), by several scribes.
Collation: 112 212 (wants 12) 312-2512 2610 2712-3112 (+1) | 328 (wants 7) 3312 3412 358 3612-3912 (wants 4, 11, 12).
It is no. 116 in Forshall and Madden (I p. lv).
Additions:There are marginal notes on the prologue by Geoffrey Blithe, Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield (1503-33), adverse to Wycliffe. See especially ff. 14v, 15r: on the latter page is a Parkerian note: “This is the hand of notes of Galfride Blith sum-time Busshop of Lich. and Couentry as before.”
In Foxe Acts and Monuments IV 186 articles are cited which were produced against Richard Hun (1514): “Dr Hed did now also after his death collect certaine others out of the prologue of his English Bible remaining then in the Bishop's hands” (Fitzjames of London). Many or all of the passages in the Prologue to which these Articles refer are marked or annotated in our MS. by Blithe. It has been suggested that this may be Hun's copy (cf. Church Quarterly Review, 1901, p. 292).
