Pruni, what's philology?
thanks pruni - that makes sense.
Its part of the prologue of the Wycliffite Bible concerning the translation of the Bible from Latin to English. For seminar on Lollardy (history module looking at late medieval culture, especially literature).

Could it be 'stones'? 'stones shall cry'? Are they praying to the stones, or something (don't really know any medieval english, just guessing...)
Am reading through document. Can read most of it but cannot understand what 'stoonis' is or 'schulen'
talking about heathen men worshipping 'stoonis' as a god? adn the phrase 'stoonis schulen crie'?
COuld schulen be children?
