Excerpt from Henry Bradshaw Society, Vol. 3: Founded in the Year of Our Lord 1890 for the Editing of Rare Liturgical Texts
In the ancient cathedral and monastic churches of England, the Martyrology was read daily in the chapter house after prime. For this reading every large church was provided with a book known as the Martyrologium, which contained not only the brief notices of saints and martyrs which were read on the day preceding their celebration and gave the name to the book, but also the records of the obits of the members of the chapter and of their benefactors, together with memoranda of various kinds.
Several of these books are still in existence. Of the Martyrologium of Christ Church, Canterbury, two copies have come down to us. The earlier, which is in the British Museum (Arundel MS., 68), is a thirteenth century MS. When this had become antiquated, an illuminated copy was made at the beginning of the sixteenth century, which is preserved in the Library of Lambeth Palace (Lambeth MS., 20). This is a large folio, still in its original leather binding, protected by plates and corner-pieces of latten. Both of these books contain an Obituarium as well as the Martyrology.
Another complete Martyrologium is that which belonged to the Brigettine monastery of Syon in Middlesex (British Museum, Add. MS., 22, 285), which will be more fully described below.
Occasionally the Martyrologium is included in the Breviarium, of which a fine example may be seen in the British Museum (Harleian Ms., 2785).
These Martyrologia were adapted solely to the purposes of the particular church in which they were used.
