Written around 1135 by the Benedictine monk, historian and scholar William of Malmesbury (d. 1143), The Miracles of the Blessed Virgin Mary belongs in the first wave of collected miracles of the Virgin, produced by English Benedictine monks in the 1120s and '30s. Only two copies of William's work survive in anything like its complete form, and only one of them represents the finished product. But many of the stories were also transmitted separately, in groups or individually; the systematic use of this evidence is a feature of this new text.
Originally written in elegant Latin, this paperback takes the translation from the original hardcover to produce an attractive edition for the student or general reader. It retains the introduction, notes and appendices - important to understand William's quotations and echoes from ancient authors - while presenting the text in a modern English version as elegant and engaging as the original.
Anyone wishing to compare the original and this translation may refer to the hardcover which remains available (9781783270163).
