Note to Anon Andr 1VII

[2] annarr drottins manna: As the first-called of the disciples of Christ, Andrew is sometimes regarded among the Apostles as second only to Peter, his brother (cf. Mark I.16-20, 29; John I.40-2), a detail which makes its way into hymns to S. Andrew; cf. Mone 1853-5, III, 96, no. 688 (s.xiii) / 1: Post Petrum primum principem Andreas est apostolus ‘After Peter, the first and most eminent, comes the Apostle Andrew’. On S. Andrew see Cross and Livingstone 1983, 51; Jón Þorkelsson 1888, 58, 61, 65-6; Bugge 1956, 133-8; Widding, Bekker-Nielsen and Shook 1963, 299-300; Foote 1976, 159-60; Cormack 1994, 78-80, 240.
