The Preces Privatae of Lancelot Andrewes: Bishop of Winchester (Classic Reprint) Details

Excerpt from The Preces Privatae of Lancelot Andrewes: Bishop of Winchester
The Hebrew of the Laudian MS. is not arranged like the Greek, but in general all the lines begin at the same level. Where a given passage is only in Hebrew this arrangement has been reproduced; but where the parallel Greek is added, this is indicated by the arrangement of the italic text in accordance with the Greek.
6. References to sources are added in the outer margin. The Scriptural references of course apply to the text of the original, and consequently they may not always be recognisable in the English Bible. But when the difference is a marked one, 'heb., ' 'sept., ' or 'vulg.' is commonly added to the reference. When the original is only in Hebrew the reference is printed in italic; but when the Greek is added, the reference is in ordinary type. An asterisk in the text indicates the end of the quotation; where no such indication is given, it must be understood that the reference applies to the whole of the text down to the end of the paragraph or to the next marginal reference. In a few cases a quotation from Holy Scripture occurring within a quotation from some other source is indicated by a subordinate reference enclosed in square brackets. A note of interrogation in the margin indicates that a passage appears to be a quotation, but its source has not been discovered. The books and editions indicated in the nonscriptural references are given in the index; but it may be well to repeat here that the Greek Liturgies (S. James, S. Basil, S. Chrysostom) are referred to in the edition used by Andrewes, printed by Morel at Paris in 1560; that 'Horae' represents the Sarum Horae printed at Paris in 1514, and 'Prymer' (without added date or publisher) represents the Sarum Prymer printed by Nicholas le Roux at Paris in 1537; and 'Heb. morn., ' 'Heb. even., ' etc., refer to the Synagogue morning and evening prayers, etc., as contained in The Authorised Daily Prayer Book of the United Hebrew Congregations of the British Empire, edited by the Rev. S. Singer, London, 1895.
7. The Notes are chiefly concerned with illustrating and explaining the text by the help of the other works of Andrewes, and treating the sources more fully than is possible in the margin.
