More Prophetic Piers Plowman

A key conclusion of recent bibliographical scholarship is that PPl circulated as political prophecy in manuscript and print in the sixteenth century. This note registers five new entries in the sixteenth-century archive of Langlandiana, representing two textually distinct excerpts. The note presents transcriptions of the five texts and discusses their textual relationship to one another and to other texts of PPl. The new texts all appear in large manuscript compilations of political prophecy.
