Rejecting the notion that the Old English composite homilies (those that borrowed from other homiletic writings) were mere "cut and paste" affairs, Ogawa (emeritus, U. of Tokyo, Japan) investigates the "personal characteristics" of language and style choices that can be found across a wide selection of composite homilies of the 10th and 11th centuries and considers their significance for the history of the vernacular homiletic literature of the period in general.
