Interesting to learn what James Joyce has Leopold Bloom Stephen Dedalus thinking of as "Agenbite of Inwit" in Ulysses: see [1]. -- JimR 12:40, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

Random House Agenbite of Inwit reference above[edit]

Just wanted to mention that the "random house" reference above "(1)" is now returning an "error". I had also referenced this site at my website (shameluss plug I suppose, but what can it hurt) - I'm not actually signed up with Wikipedia, but I thought I'd offer this comment up. If I was signed up it would be as such: -- KenH 10:51, 17 August 2007 in Charlotte, NC -- you know, eastern time. Peace.

June 9, 2008: Please note that the randomhouse link is now functional again! It is worth checking out. Peace, Ken. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:04, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

What's up with the crude contradiction between and this article regarding the popularity of the text? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:47, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

I think the Canterbury Tales article is talking about the French original--if there were two copies just in the St. Augustine library, it could well be the second-most popular work then, no? zafiroblue05 | Talk 06:59, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
It appears the confusion arises from the distinction between early handwritten manuscripts and early printed text editions. The former are relatively common while the latter are surprisingly rare. --Kevjonesin (talk) 13:35, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
I'll note though that I'm not entirely sure that Prick of Conscience ("most popular of all medieval poems") and Ayenbite of Inwyt are in fact always referring to the same text. I'm still doing some web research. Found this version of the Ayenbite text:
