notes:

[2] Taddéum (acc.) ‘Thaddaeus’: S. Thaddaeus, mentioned in the lists of the Apostles at Matt. X.3, Mark III.18, is usually identified with the Apostle Jude (see Cross and Livingstone 1983, 764, 1356). In Scandinavian sources he is sometimes referred to as Judas-Thaddaeus, sometimes as Judas (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, see John XIV.22), sometimes, as here, simply as Thaddaeus. According to tradition, he was martyred in Persia alongside the Apostle Simon, with whom he shares the feast-day of 28 October (cf. Note to 11/3; Kilström 1963, 5-6; Widding, Bekker-Nielsen and Shook 1963, 332; Foote 1976, 170-1; Cormack 1994, 152).
