"Among the books which afford us an insight into the popular religious thought of the middle ages, none holds a more important place than the Legenda Aurea or Golden Legend. The book was compiled and put into form about the year 1275 by Jacobus de Voragine, Archbishop of Genoa, who laid under contribution for his purpose the Lives of the Fathers by S. Jerome, the Ecclesiastical History of Eusebius, and other books of a like kind; while for the lives of the saints more nearly approaching his own age he appears to have industriously collected such legends as he could meet with, whether in manuscript or handed down by oral tradition."--Prologue

Women of the Gilte legende : a selection of Middle English saints lives by Jacobus( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a prose translation of a selection of women saints' lives from the Gilte Legende, the Middle English version of Jacobus de Voragine's Legenda Aurea, one of the most influential books to come from the middle ages. Because of its popularity and subject matter, the Gilte Legende was widely read and used as a model for everyday life, including the education of women through examples set by early Christian martyrs. Many of the women saints spoke passionately about their convictions and defended their faith and their bodies to the death. For over 400 years, these amazing vernacular stories have been inaccessible to a wider audience. This book divides the lives of female saints into: the "ryght hooly virgins", who vocally defend their bodies against Roman persecution; "holy mothers", who give up their traditional role to pursue a life of contemplation; the 'repentant sinners', who convert and voice their defiance against a society that demanded silence in women; and the "holy transvestites", who cast off their gender identity to find absolution and salvation. Their lives reach through the ages to speak to a modern audience, academic and non-academic, forcing a re-examination of women's roles in the medieval period. Includes: Saint Christina, Saint Dorothy, Saint Margaret of Antioch, Saint Paula, Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, Mary Magdalene, Saint Marina, Saint Theodora, Saint Pelagia, Saint Margaret Pelagia. Also includes the interpretative essay: Silence and speech in the female lives of the Gilte Legende and their influence on the lives of ordinary medieval women

Die altokzitanische Version B der "Legenda aurea" : Ms. Paris, Bibl. nat., n. acq. fr. 6504 by Jacobus( Book )

11 editions published between 1989 and 1995 in 4 languages and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: The "Legenda aurea", compiled in Latin by Jacobus de Voragine between 1260 and 1270, is the most widely disseminated collection of saints' legends in the Middle Ages. Among the countless vernacular reworkings there are three in Old Occitan which are closely bound up with the Catalan line of "Legenda aurea" adaptations. The Old Occitan Version B edited here for the first time represents a selection of 102 chapters from the original corpus with four additional chapters and is based on various Occitan and Catalan translations from the Latin. The linguistic commentary concentrates on the vocabulary of the texts edited and also presents it in a complete glossary. Newly attested forms and meanings are provided with commentaries of their own and represent a significant addition to the material available to Old Occitan lexicography
The Golden Legend : Readings on the Saints by Jacobus( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depicting the lives of the saints in an array of factual and fictional stories, The Golden Legend was perhaps the most widely read book, after the Bible, during the late Middle Ages. It was compiled around 1260 by Jacobus de Voragine, a scholarly friar and later archbishop of Genoa, whose purpose was to captivate, encourage, and edify the faithful, while preserving a vast store of information pertaining to the legends and traditions of the church. In this translation, the first in English of the complete text, William Granger Ryan captures the immediacy of this rich work, which offers an important guide for readers interested in medieval art and literature and, more generally, in popular religious culture. Arranged according to the order of saints' feast days, these fascinating stories are now combined into one volume. This edition also features an introduction by Eamon Duffy contextualizing the work
