Crist, Derbyshire

Christ, in Old English Crist, is the title given to a triad of Old English religious poems in the Exeter Book comprising a total of 1664 lines and dealing with Christ's Advent, Ascension and Last Judgment. It was originally thought to be one piece completed by a single author, but the poem is now broken up into three parts: Christ I (also Christ A or Advent Lyrics), a collection of twelve anonymous Old English poems dealing with Christ's Advent.
