Abstract

This brief jotting is a reaction to a rebellion currently unfolding in Wales under the leadership of Owain Glyndŵr, a notable distance from the Benedictine Abbey of St Albans in Hertfordshire. The jotting expresses an anxiety so deep–seated that an individual was moved to deface a manuscript page. Written in dactylic hexameter, it is testimony of the level of education at the Abbey of St Albans from which it can be assumed that the writer came.
