The Passio Apostolorum Petri et Pauli, an apocryphal narrative relating the actions and martyrdom of the apostles Peter and Paul in Rome, is described in Sources of Anglo-Saxon Literary Culture (SASLC): A Trial Version as extant in two Old English translations: Blickling Homily 15 and AElfric's Catholic Homily I, 26.(1) In addition, the SASLC entry mentions two secondary uses of the Passio in other Old English works: the incorporation of a short passage into item 62 of The Book of Cerne,(2) and AElfric's apparent structuring of one of his Rogation homilies (Catholic Homilies II, 21) on the model of the Latin text.(3) Frederick M.
Clearly the SASLC entry and other discussions of the apocryphal acts of Peter and Paul need to be updated in light of the Wulfstanian text.
