Little is known about the life of Symeon of Durham (fl. c.1090-c.1128), other than that he was one of the monks present at the translation of the remains of Saint Cuthbert in 1104. This second volume of his complete works, published in 1885, was edited by Thomas Arnold (1823-1900) with an introduction and English side-notes. The main Latin text here is Symeon's history of the kings of Britain, which was intended as a continuation of Bede's history from the year 731 up to the writer's own day. Much of the early narrative is taken from local Durham annals, and later sections are borrowed from the chronicle of John of Worcester, but from 1119 to 1129 Symeon is an independent and unique authority. John of Hexham's continuation of the history, up to 1153, is also included, in addition to appendices on the genealogies of the Anglo-Saxon kings, a glossary and an index to both volumes
Libellus de exordio atque procursu istius, hoc est Dunhelmensis, ecclesie = Tract on the origins and progress of this the Church of Durham by Simeon( Book )

The church of Durham, founded in 995, claimed in the Middle Ages to be in origin the church of Lindisfarne or Holy Island, the members of which had fled in the face of Viking raids and had wandered for long across northern England, before re-establishing their church at Chester-le-Street in Co. Durham and then at Durham itself. The text edited and translated here for the first time for over a century is the most complete and detailed account of the history of that church. Important as a piece of early post-Conquest historiography by an author about whom much is now known, the text is fascinating for the details it gives about the ecclesiastical community of Durham, the miracles which its members believed had occurred, and the place of the church of Durham in relation to the lands and secular inhabitants of northern England
