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, 293 x 192 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) (11.6 x 7.7 in.), ff. 133, 30 and 35 lines to a page. Cent. xi, in a fine and delicate round minuscule. Two scribes seem readily distinguishable.
Collation: I8-XVI8 XVII6 (wants 6).
2 fo.: Testimonium Iosephi.
Provenance:No mark is left, but from a list of books repaired at Christ Church, Canterbury, it can be identified as having belonged to that house. The opening words of the second leaf give the clue. Ancient Libraries, p. 158, no. 155.
Decoration: Titles in small red and green capitals.
Research:It seems evident that this MS. and MS 184 are related in view of their nearly identical omissions in Liber XI, xxiii.
MS 184 reads: “Post hoc reuulsum ceruicibus que apud illos sunt elementis cuius littere seu uocabuli.” With no note there, or subsequently, of omission.
MS 187 reads: “Post hoc reuulsum ceruicibus [then an erasure of a few words and .Θ. written in the space]. Cuius littere seu uocabuli.” The omitted text is supplied on ff. 131v-133r preceded by a Θ.
It seems likely to me that the words “que apud illos sunt elementis” were originally written in MS 187 (which was copied from a mutilated archetype): that the omission was discovered later on, the words erased and a sign of omission put in, and the text written at the end of the book. In the interval the MS 184 was copied from MS 187.
