    The South English Legendary is the major collection of saints' lives in Middle English; a medieval bestseller with 60 or so manuscripts in circulation from the late 13th to 15th centuries. The present volume comprises 21 essays on these texts, including both new hagiographic and manuscript scholarship and some earlier key articles, addressing questions about the Legendary's literary models and audience, textual issues and the socio-cultural and political background.
