The Scottish Text Society have
done a great service to many departments of historical inquiry by the
publication of Murdoch Nisbet’s New Testament in Scots, the second volume being
part of last year’s issue.
It is not a simple transcript of
Purvey’s edition of Wycliffe’s New Testament; it is a translation of that book
into the Scots language. It is the only version which exists of the New
Testament in the tongue of the northern portion of Great Britain. It is more. It
is the only literary relic we possess of the Scottish Lollards.
