"This is a wonderful book. The argument is original and compelling, and the research thorough and convincing. It will make an important contribution both to the specific studies of medieval hagiography and medieval women's literary culture and to the broader field of medieval studies."—Jennifer Summit, Stanford University
"Elegantly written and learned."—Choice
"Sanok's impeccably researched volume . . . should definitely put an end to the fiction that late medieval hagiographic literature knew nothing of history."—Journal of British Studies
