Originally published in 1988. This book offers a very useful source of information on Chaucer’s relationship to the Bible. It contains a detailed chapter on research into this connection and then presents two indexes. The first is organised by title of Chaucer’s work and then line number detailing the biblical reference. Each entry, if relevant, also notes works listed in the Bibliography that discuss that link. The second index is reversed and so organised by scriptural reference. Detailed guides to each index also discuss interesting facets to how Chaucer drew on the Bible for his works.
