Details

Written to bolster the faith of English Christians at the time of the Viking raids, Ælfric’s Lives of the Virgin Spouses tells the stories of Julian and Basilissa, Cecilia and Valerian and Chrysanthus and Daria, couples who married, but true to the ideal of marital celibacy, never consummated their union. Alongside the Old English originals, Upchurch provides modern English parallel-text translations and the closest Latin source texts (also with translations) for comparison. With introduction, notes, commentary and glossary.
