(The Runner of the World) A Middle-English poem of about 25,000 lines, mainly in eight-syllable couplets, written by an unknown cleric in northern England, c.1300A.D. It is a sort of religious epic, written in honor of the Blessed Virgin, and purports to give a history of the world as derived from the Old and New Testaments, with the Redemption as the central theme. It is a valuable storehouse of medieval legends. An edition was brought out, 1874-1893, by Dr Richard Morris for Early English Text Society.
