Original text and translations
2 poems, both entitled "Philomena": the 1st part is the opening stanza of a work first attributed to St. Bonaventura and later to various 13c authors, including John of Peckham, Archbishop of Canterbury. Part 2 is paraphrased from lines of a work of Juventinus Albus Ovidus.
