Anon Brúðv 27VII l. 8

manns — the man’s

lemma:

maðr (noun m.): man, person

readings:

[8] manns sögu: man sögu 721, ‘mans.gv’ 1032ˣ, ‘mans..gv’ 399a‑bˣ

notes:

[8] manns sögu ‘the man’s story’: 721 reads man sögu, where man could mean ‘woman, female slave’, an unlikely term for the Virgin Mary, because of its frequently pejorative connotations. The scribe of 2166ˣ gives the fragmentary reading mn s..gv in the margin.
