This book came to my attention through two separate experiences in teaching middle ages history and literature The first was reading Cervantes classic Don Quixote, which created an entirely new historical fiction genre Cervantes alludes to the devotion of the masses to this work, which was second to the Bible in popularity Secondly, in researching books for Valentine s Day, it turns out The Golden Legend is primary source material on this saint When I m ready for this text, I would like to r This book came to my attention through two separate experiences in teaching middle ages history and literature The first was reading Cervantes classic Don Quixote, which created an entirely new historical fiction genre Cervantes alludes to the devotion of the masses to this work, which was second to the Bible in popularity Secondly, in researching books for Valentine s Day, it turns out The Golden Legend is primary source material on this saint When I m ready for this text, I would like to read this translation.Don Quixote, Cervantes, 1605https www.goodreads.com review showThe Story of Saint Valentine, Odden, 2007https www.goodreads.com review show I see the beginnings of the revival of written history in this book, written in the 1200 s in Europe On several occasions the author comments that such and such a source says this, while the other source says that, and that they are obviously incompatible, and that this throws doubt on the sources While the legends themselves are often fantastic, as you would expect from the genre, this is a refreshing nugget of common sense in an ignorant world. Other than the hyperbole inherent in this genre, this work can be inspiring In the post modern era of self satisfaction and situational ethics, it is refreshing to read about a time when the Good was appreciated and Evil was recognized for what it is Demons prevail where God is ignored.

There s not enough of the golden and too much of the legend in this book for me to givethan 3 stars.
