  • Includes reprinted and updated versions of seminal articles in the field, before now published in obscure and out-of-print volumes
  • Saints' lives are a hotly expanding field of undergraduate and postgraduate study, revelatory for medieval sex-and-gender systems and many other socio-cultural areas, as well as critically and aesthetically stimulating
  • The section on performance, in addition to its implications for the study of hagiography and medieval textuality in general, will be of particular value for teachers and students
  • Brings together established and emerging scholars
  • Nevertheless there is a paucity of scholarship in this area in relationship to importance of the text - this volume redresses this imbalance
