Attolite portas & c(etera)
attollite portas principes vestras et ceteraG.19.268: A number of C manuscripts share the G Hm reading portas principes vestras (most B manuscripts just read portas), but once again, as with the correspondence at G.12.124, these shared readings may simply result from shared recollection of biblical material (in this case, Psalm 23:9). //
Attollite portas & ceteraO.18.269: This line is written in the right margin.
Attollite portas a uoys loude in þat liȝt
to lucifer crieth .R.18.264: Beta reads this passage as two lines, dividing alpha's line
between the Latin and the English. Though most C manuscripts agree with
the line division of beta, some of the best X family witnesses (XIP2K)
agree with alpha.
Tollite portas a voyȝs in þat lyght / to lucyfer crieþ.F.14.262: Alpha had combined two lines into one. Beta witnesses read:
A vois loude in þat light to lucifer crieþ.
