Perhaps this is something handled by a different package from reledmac. I have the text and critical apparatus as footnotes. Now I would like to be able to refer to the line and page numbers of the text elsewhere in the document -- for instance, in the introduction, I might want to say "This scene begins on line X of page Y" or "See line X of page Y for an example." I also think that to make an extensive commentary after the text, it would be easier to do it separately than to use the \AEndnote command.

Do I need to use a different package in combination with reledmac to do this?


reledmac provides tools for that.

First, you must mark your line


Then you can use

see p. \edpageref{yourlabel} l \edlineref{yourlabel}

It also provides


That allow you to marks the begin / the end of a passage and to use command like


Which automatically insert starting/end lines if they differs.

Please read § 11 of reledmac handbook for more details
