Author Abbo of Fleury
Source Title The Passio of St. Edmund
Date of composition 985x988
Language Latin


*Commonly referred to as the Passio Sancti Eadmundi
*There is some disagreement over the date of composition. Marco Mostert ({'Abbo', in Michael Lapidge et al. (ed.), The Blackwell Encyclopaedia of Anglo-Saxon England, Oxford: Blackwell Publishers, 1999}), believes that it was not completed until after Abbo's return to Fleury in Autumn 987. However it was certainly finished by May 988, when Abbo's dedicatee Dunstan died, and before Abbo's own appointment as abbot, as he describes himself as a deacon.
