Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the reconstruction of the text history of the Passio Olavi. Each of the seven manuscripts of Recensio I represents a unique combination of a Passioportion in long version A or B and a summary of miracles collection. Variance exists on all text layers, from the overall structure of the text on individual terms to philological details. The textual witnesses H and N contain a different version of the Passio part despite the critical text near the miracle collection. The chapter discusses the two versions of the miracles. The oral vernacular tradition of Recensio I is associated with the written tradition of the Church. The eight miracles play an important role in the previous hypotheses of the first Latin miracle collection. The chapter shows the distribution of the miracle substance in the vernacular poem. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: miracles collection; oral vernacular tradition; Passio Olavi; Recensio I; vernacular poem
