The Golden Legend by Jacobus de Voragine

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. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
