I recently finished reading Kazutomo Karasawa’s The Old English Metrical Calendar (Menologium) (Cambridge, 2015), which is essential reading for anyone interested in learning about calendars in Anglo-Saxon England. It’s a full edition of the poem with a facing-page translation and loads of information.
I was inspired to update my previous ‘months of the year’ posts (see links below) with information from Karasawa’s book.
October, or Winterfylleð
November, or Blotmonað
December, or Ærra Iula
January, or Æfterra Iula
February, or Solmonað
I still have March through September to do, so look out for new posts on the first of each month!
