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.

Eusebius of Caesarea, Historia ecclesiastica, transl. by Rufinus(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Eusebii Historia Per Rufinum
Codicology:Vellum, 288 x 202 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) (11.2 x 8 in.), ff. 176 + 6, 28 lines to a page. Cent. xii.
Collation: a4 (1 a slip) 18-XXII8 b2.
2 fo.: succesiones or conscripta.
On the flyleaves (ff. ir-ivr) are unimportant notes (xv and xvi).
Provenance:In a fine hand which is that characteristic of Christ Church, Canterbury. There can be little doubt that the book was written there.
At the bottom of f. 1r is:
“Ecclesiastica historia per Ricardum monachum” .
The position and character of this mark lead me to believe that the book, written at Canterbury, belonged to Rochester priory. (See Ancient Libraries of Canterbury , p. lxxxviii.)
It is probably a copy of MS 187: see on that.
Titles in small red capitals.
