Golden Legend, vol. 4

by Jacobus de Voragine


The GOLDEN LEGEND Volume 4 (aka LIVES of the SAINTS) recounts the faith and suffering of over thirty saints/martyrs many of whom are from the Bible or Apocrypha. The stories of several apostles such as James the Greater, Peter, and Paul are brought to life as they faced death. Pope Leo and the Seven Maccabees are also a part of this volume. Stories were first compiled in 1275 and published in 1470. Eventually translated into English by William Caxton and published in 1483. This volume includes the conversion of Paul with commentary.
