Sanctity in the North: Saints, Lives, and Cults in Medieval Scandinavia written by Thomas DuBois

 

Sanctity in the North: Saints, Lives, and Cults in Medieval Scandinavia written by Thomas DuBois

Synopsis:

With original translations of primary texts and articles by leading researchers in the field, Sanctity in the North provides an introduction to the literary production associated with the cult of the saints in medieval Scandinavia.

For more than five hundred years, Nordic clerics and laity venerated a host of saints through liturgical celebrations, written manuscripts, visual arts, and oral tradition. The textual evidence of this widespread and important aspect of medieval spirituality abounds. Written biographies (vitae), compendia of witnessed miracles, mass propers, homilies, sagas and chronicles, dramatic scripts, hymns, and ballads are found in the region's surviving medieval manuscripts and early published books.

Sanctity in the North features English translations of these texts from Latin or vernacular Nordic languages, in many cases for the first time. The accompanying essays concerning the texts, saints, cults, and history of the period complement the translations and reflect contributors' own disciplinary groundings, in folklore, philology, medieval, and religious studies.
