Excerpt: ... 01, which is the older version, has alone of the two 23, 34, 40, 41, 45, 57, 76, 77, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 109. Pen has scarcely anything common to other versions which is not also found in 0l. There are, it is true, some exceptions. The two journeys are by sea and land respectively, as in y* and ft*, whereas in 01 the first is by land and sea, and the second by sea. In Pen a journey takes the place of the war, as in several versions'). The hands are not restored till the end of the story, as in Mk. The miracle is wrought, not by the Blessed Virgin, but by a sorcerer, whom Suchier (Beanm. I, p. LV) identifies with the hermit of /?*, who plays the same part. Some of these coincidences may well be accidental, and on the whole it may be fairly assumed that Pen is derived by popular tradition from some form of 01, probably from one of the miracle-plays. The connection of 01 with ft* is indicated by 7, 31, (65,) 63, 76, 77, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 109, 110. On the other hand' 3, 23, 32, 57, and 85 seem borrowed from *HC. 33, 34, 40, 45, 67, and perhaps 21, 36, 41, 51, are common to the two sources ft* and *HC. II. Relation to History. 1. The Northumbrian Saga of JSlla and Eadwine. Trivet's chronicle contains the only existing version of the Constance saga in which the hero is identified with any historical personage, for Offa 1 can hardly be regarded as such. The heroine of Tr marries King 'Alle' of Northumberland, i. e. JE\& of Deira, who died in 588. We have already found reason to think that Tr (with the exception of its beginning) follows very closely the important type <_52a_2c_20_the20_original20_of20_half20_the20_literary20_versions20_28_p.20_2120_f.29_.20_suchier20_has20_suggested20_a20_clue2c_20_by20_which20_perhaps20_the20_connection20_of20_the20_ancient20_saga20_with20_mla20_of20_deira20_may20_be20_explained.20_he20_says20_28_beaum.20_i2c_20_p.20_lxxiv29_3a_20_22_dans20_le... the="" original="" of="" half="" literary="" versions="" _28_p.="" 21="" _f.29_.="" suchier="" has="" suggested="" a="" _clue2c_="" by="" which="" perhaps="" connection="" ancient="" saga="" with="" mla="" deira="" may="" be="" explained.="" he="" says="" _28_beaum.="" _i2c_="" p.="" _lxxiv29_3a_="" _22_dans="">
