Chapter Summary

Noting what seemed to be a surprising degree of variety among the dates posited for the hagiographic and romance portions of Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Laud Misc. 108 laud misc (L), the author once, informally, generalized that the South English Legendary (SEL) scholars, have tended to cite only scholars from their own south english legendary (SEL) camp. The survey of studies on the dating of L and the SEL and romance texts within it, with some additional content summarized in the accompanying table, demonstrates the extent to which author's generalization is valid, and points up some additional significant tendencies as well. A fair number of scholars have kept within their own generic camps, despite the texts' shared physical context, thematic commonalities, and audience. Havelok and Horn scholars might benefit from much SEL scholars have to offer as well.
