18. John Snyder, Theinred of Dover's De Legitimis Ordinibus

While the volume was in press, the author realized that by Alleluia, laetabundus, Theinred most likely refers not literally to an Alleluia with its verse, but to a sequence. A few corrections are therefore necessary. An additional page documenting these will be sent free of charge on request.
