Love, Rosalind C.

SUMMARY

This volume contains comprehensive and scholarly editions of three Anglo-Saxon saints' lives: Birinus of Dorchester-on-Thames, Kenelm of Winchcombe, and Rumwold of Buckingham. Rosalind Love provides the Latin texts, based on all known manuscript versions, with a facing-page English translation, together with full annotation and a historical introduction which sets these works in the context of the development of hagiographical literature. Dr Love traces the growth and changes in hagiographical writing, one of the most important genres of medieval literature and essential to the understanding of the religious mentality of the Middle Ages, and shows how the eleventh century saw significant new directions emerge in the cult of the saints and the writing of saints' lives.Love, Rosalind C. is the author of 'Three Eleventh-Century Anglo-Latin Saints' Lives Vita S. Birini, Vita Et Miracula S. Kenelmi and Vita S. Rumwoldi', published 1996 under ISBN 9780198205241 and ISBN 0198205244.
