Like Secundum Matheum, Secundum Lucam shows no influence from Adso, and thus was most likely written before Wulfstan's Old English De Anticristo. It occurs in three manuscripts: Cambridge, Corpus Christi College 421, pp. 221-24; Cambridge, Corpus Christi College 201, pp. 72-74; and Bodleian Hatton 113, ff. 49b-52. The version in CCCC 421 is one of two homilies forming a separate section on a single quire within the manuscript, written in a hand and format that differs from the remaining contents. The first homily has the rubric "Lar Spell", while the rubric for the second (Secundum Lucam) has apparently been erased. Because the table of contents shows that Matthew Parker, at any rate, considered the two to be a single homily, the manuscript transcription of CCCC 421 includes both texts.

The end of the homily, beginning with Wa þam þe... in para. 4, was incorporated into the conclusion of an anonymous homily entitled De Letania Maiore in Bodleian MS. Hatton 114, ff. 97b-102b, as well as into Napier Homily 43, Sunnandæges Spell, p. 209.
