Chapter Summary

The purpose of this chapter is to identify ways in which the sanctorale of the South English Legendary (SEL), found in Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Laud Misc. The process of compilation apparent in L (Laud Misc) points to a series of broadly thoughtful rather than haphazard acts, whereby each textual item in the codex is effectively some kind of comment on what the other texts meant to the various compilers and what the compilers expected the texts they were dealing with to mean to their target readerships. The late thirteenth-century sanctorale is plainly by far the longest of all the L texts and also, arguably, the base text to which all else was added, with the special exception of the preceding temporale that went with this sanctorale to constitute the late thirteenth-century SEL.
