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.

Ralph de Diceto, Abbreuiationes chronicorum (extract on the Annals of the archbishops of Canterbury). John Cassian, De institutis coenobiorum(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Radulphus de Diceto. Ioh. Cassianus
Codicology:Vellum, 423 x 291 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College), (16.6 x 11 in.), ff. 29 + 62, two volumes in double columns of 40 and 39 lines respectively. Cent. xiii early and xiv. The lower corners eaten off throughout.
Multivolume:
Volume I: The writing is very fine, and the book may have been, as Bishop Stubbs suggests, a presentation copy to Archbishop Hubert.
Volume II: In a very good clear Roman hand of cent. xv.
Collation: 11 28 38 4 (six: of which 2, 3 are supplies of cent. xvi) | six blank leaves of vellum and two of paper follow | 18-78 86 (or 8 wanting 4, 5).
2 fo.:
Volume II:re studebo.
Provenance:
Volume I: From Christ Church, Canterbury. On 2r is at top, Annuales, and below, Annales stephani archiepiscopi. Stephen Langton is meant. The book occurs as no. 1438 in the principal catalogue ( Ancient Libraries , p. 122) among Libri Stephani Archiepiscopi.
Volume II: not Italian, but written, I believe, in the Low Countries. I find no name or mark of owner.
Additions:One of the vellum leaves which follow (30v)(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) is part of a document of cent. xvi. Edmund (Bonner) Bp of London is mentioned.
Research:On this MS. (Volume I)(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) see Stubbs, Rad. de Diceto I xcix, and the collation of it in the same work vol. II p. lxi etc. which gives the whole contents. The text is a compilation of Radulfus' own from his larger works.
