Synopses & Reviews
This short reader includes selections from Stouck's longer volume, Medieval Saints: A Reader, along with new material. It is designed to briefly introduce students to many of the most famous and representative saints of the age, and can be used to supplement other texts in a more general medieval history course.
"Mary-Ann Stouck's short reader stands apart in offering an abbreviated but judicious selection of saints' lives perfectly suited as a brief introduction. It fills a particular need with an elegant sufficiency." - Cynthia J. Hahn, Hunter College and the Graduate Center-CUNY
