*@Godman 1982, p. 13, notes to lines 92-3ff. states: 'In what follows Alcuin departs from Bede's narrative in two chief respects: he omits Aethelfrith's attempts to have Edwin assassinated (HE ii. 12) and he places the account of Edwin's imperium, marriage and reception of Paulinus (HE ii. 9 [= vv. 131ff.] after the vision described at HE ii. 12 [= vv. 90-119]. The entire events of Edwin's reign are made to proceed from this prophetic vision.'
