Excerpt from Purity: A Middle English Poem; Edited With Introduction, Notes, and Glossary
A small quarto volume in the British Museum, Cotton ms. Nero Ax+4 (new numbering) contains, bound between two Latin manuscripts, the unique manuscript1 of the four poems generally attrib... uted to the author of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Purity, which occupies folios 61a-86a, follows The Pearl, and precedes Patience and Gawain. Several crude pictures illustrate episodes in the poems. Of the two which precede Purity, the first represents Noah and his family in the ark, and the second shows Daniel expounding the writing on the wall to Belshazzar and the queen.
