Note to stanza

7. Anonymous Poems, Pétrsdrápa, 12 [Vol. 7, 805]

[All]: Cf. Pétr 1/14-2/3: hana nefnir su bok er heitir Ecclesiastica Historia, Perpetuam ... þat finnz ok ritat, at su mær sem Petronilla er nefnd, hafi verit dottir Simonis þessa sama ‘That book which is called Ecclesiastica Historia names her Perpetua ...  That is also found written that that maiden who is named Petronilla was the daughter of this same Simon’; (79/7-8): Perpetua, er Eusebius segir verit hafa eiginkonu Petri ‘Perpetua, whom Eusebius says was the wedded wife of Peter’. See Foote 1993, 245: ‘Neither Eusebius nor any other early source names Peter’s wife, but after some vacillation Perpetua became fixed in the martyrologies and generally accepted’.
