Description

In this survey of thirteenth-century codices in Old French verse that contain at least one saint's life, the author finds a great variety among combinations, in contrast to the corpus of medieval Latin hagiographic manuscripts. She interprets the combinations of texts in four collections, demonstrating the value of codicological and textual analysis of entire manuscripts as an approach to medieval vernacular pious literature.
