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.

Pontifical(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Pontificale (Canterbury Ely)
Codicology:Vellum, 330 x 245 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College), (13.7 x 10 in.), ff. 1 + 201, 20 lines to a page. Cent. xi (and xvi), The original text is in a most magnificent round black script of the type which I associate with St Augustine's, Canterbury.
Collation: 1 flyleaf, 18 (wants 1, 2) 28-68 (wants 2) | 78-168 (gap) 178-248 | 258 264.
Provenance:It is probable to my mind from this (the hand reminiscent of St Augustine's, Canterbury)(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) and from the invocations in the Litany that the book was written at Canterbury. But, as we shall see, it belonged in cent. xv to Ely.
Additions:On the flyleaf (i), in the xvith cent. hand which reappears at the end, is:
“Index huius pontificalis.”
I do not think it is one of Parker's additions: it seems to me earlier.
Additions:The original hand begins iii with a Preface in Anglo-Saxon. Two leaves are gone and the first page has been erased, but the text of it is probably recoverable.
Research:Wanley (p. 109) prints the end of this Preface, which ends on 1.
Additions:In the lower margin of f. 189v (p. 386) is an erased inscription of cent. xv-xvi:
Ely
Iste liber pertinet ecclesie Eliensi.”
Above it an inscription of Parker's date erased (probably as being erroneous). I read the words:
“... vocat(us?) The red book of ...”
This seems to show that the writer of the note confused this MS. with MS 422, which was really “the Red Book of Derby” ; and that he or some one else realized the mistake and erased the note.
Additions:The writing is splendid throughout. The initials are perfectly plain, in green, blue or red.
Research:The Coronation-service is used by Legg, Three Coronation Orders, p. xxxviii (pl. 3) and Liebermann, pp. xxi, 215, 365, 401, 416 (ordeals). He calls it Ce and assigns it to 1040-80.
Research:See also Henderson, Liber pontificalis Eboracensis, p. xxi.
Foliation: ff. a-b + pp. i-iv + 1-84 (85-94 missing) + 95-274 + 274a-b + 275-366 (367-368 missing) + 369-410 + ff. c-d(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
