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.

Egesippus
Codicology:Vellum, 310 x 175 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) (12.2 x 7 in.), ff. 135 + 3, 38 lines to a page. Cent. xi, in various good hands, rather rough and fluctuating.
Collation: a (three) i8-xvii8 (wants 8).
Provenance:At top of f. 1 (xiii) erased
“Lib. sci Andr' de ...
Jo le(?)”
The obvious churches of St Andrew are Rochester, Hexham, Wells.
Additions:The three flyleaves (ff. ir-iiiv)(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) are from a very beautifully written Italian copy of the Digest of cent. xii, with interesting initials, birds, dragons, etc. outlined in red, washed with green and yellow: double columns of 49-50 lines. More leaves from the same book are at Pembroke College, taken from the binding of a book which was given to Bury Abbey by R. Grosseteste in exchange for another (no. 7. See my catalogue p. xl: cf. also MS. 285 at Gonville and Caius College). The marginal and interlinear notes are of exquisite delicacy.
Foliation: ff. a-b + i-iii + 1-135 + c-d(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
