Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 270: "This retelling of the events of CSM 237, 245, 399, 333, and 267 is informative and instructive. While no great historical burdens are placed on the "proofs" these poems provide, they do give a greater reality to the roles of such religious lyrics in the fabric of every day life in the Peninsula. Alfonso's narrative is compared to a similar account in the Crónicas dos sete primeiros reis de Portugal."
