This file was submitted by Prof. Jane Roberts on behalf of Pam Weisweiller, a King's College London postgraduate who died while writing up her PhD thesis. Pam drew attention in her University of London M.A. dissertation (1985-86) to Ker's identification of BHL nos 1768 or 1769 as closer to the Old English St Christopher than BHL no. 1766, the Acta Sanctorum text (25 July) supplied for comparison in Rypins edition (1924). In her preliminary examination of sources Mrs Weisweiller identified significant readings that point to a Munich text as perhaps being more closely related to the Old English fragment than any so far in print.
