    One thought on “The Golden Legend: Readings on the Saints, Volume I”

    1. The imagery of the medieval world is vivid with all its demons and dragons attacking the Christians. But surprisingly, the individuals being attacked flinch not because they already know that Christ has overcome the world and this knowledge strengthens them to stand strong against the evils. I enjoyed this book. It was an easy read, but more than that, it helped me understand an era of great Christian Strength, strength that I hope someday to obtain!

    2. I really enjoyed reading this. It's pretty easy to read, and the stories are so amazing! Literally! They're pretty much outrageous. Out of the gb books this year, this is one of the ones I enjoyed more.

    3. Supposedly the most widely-read book of the Middle Ages after the Bible. A quote on the back describes it as "the literary equivalent ofained glass". Delightful and wonderfully strange.

    4. A compilation of the lives of the saints, but honestly, only interesting if you are predisposed to that sort of thing. That said, I love it.
