Anon Vitn 14VII/1 — hringa ‘of rings’

Spurði hringa hirði
herra ríkr að slíku;
sætu sögn í móti
sór hann eiða stóra.
Guðs fyrir nýtar náðir
nefndur byskup stefndi
vænn til vátta sinna
virkr í Máríukirkju.

Ríkr herra spurði hirði hringa að slíku; hann sór stóra eiða í móti sögn sætu. Fyrir nýtar náðir guðs stefndi nefndur, vænn, virkr byskup til vátta sinna í Máríukirkju.

The powerful lord asked the keeper of rings [MAN] about this; he swore great oaths against the assertions of the woman. Because of the beneficial grace [lit. graces] of God, the afore-mentioned good, considerate bishop summoned [him] to his witnesses in the Church of Mary.
