By creating a single-volume sourcebook of core Christian stories, Jacobus de Voragine (c. 1229-98) attracted a huge audience across Europe. This selection of over seventy biographies ranges from the first Apostles and Roman martyrs to near-contemporaries such as St Dominic, St Francis of Assissi and St Elizabeth of Hungary. Here, witnesses to the true faith endure horrific tortures- reformed prostitutes win divine forgiveness- while other women live disguised as monks or nobly resist lustful tyrants.

Lucid and compelling, The Golden Legend offers an enthralling insight into the medieval mind.
