Not only does AElfric's choice of words recall Radulf's sacerdotalia indumenta and (in the Wulfsige letter only) the lintheamina nitida for the altars, but the very sequence of these and the preceding directions in Briefe I, 2, and II appears to derive from an abridgement of Radulf's fifth capitulum akin to that preserved only in CCCC 265.
