Review:

This is a splendid and very useful volume, of interest to those working on vernacular literature, hagiography, history, liturgy and spirituality. Mary Clayton, University College Dublin. In: The Journal of Ecclesiastical History, Vol. 65, No. 3 (July 2014), pp. 660-661. There is much here [ ] to interest scholars of all stripes [ ] this volume will surely prove a valuable teaching resource, and the case it makes for introducing Wace s hagiographical works to a broader audience is a highly persuasive one . Huw Grange, University of Cambridge. In: Modern Language Reviews, 109, Part 3, 2014, p. 797. This is a very welcome edition and translation of Wace s lesser-known works: The Conception Nostre Dame and the Lives of St Margaret and St Nicholas are excellent sources for folklorists and other scholars of medieval religious narrative and popular religion. David Elton Gay, Indiana University Bloomington. In: Fabula, 55, 3-4, 2014, p.329."

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 240 x 162 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Best known for his two chronicles, the Roman de Brut and the Roman de Rou, Wace, one of the great pioneers of twelfth-century French writing, is also the author of three hagiographical works: the Conception Nostre Dame and the Lives of St Margaret and St Nicholas. The Conception is the first vernacular work to focus on the life of the Virgin Mary. Emphasising Margaret s concern for women in labour, the Margaret seemingly contributed to the saint s broad popularity. The Nicholas, with its many miracles involving children, equally played a key role in popularising its protagonist s cult. The present volume brings these works together for the first time and provides the original texts, the first translations into English, notes and substantial introductions.
