An Eighth Day View:


"This book is...a fascinating read with insight into the representation of women in the late Middle Ages, and a peek into the life of their chatty fifteenth-century biography". -- The Catholic World

Sheila Delany's spirited translation of Osbern Bokenham's Legendys of Hooly Wummen makes available in modern English the first all-female hagiography, closely translated from Latinate Middle English verse into fluent prose. A Legend of Holy Women contains the Augustinian friar's version of the stories of 13 women saints from gospel, apocrypha, martyrology, and high-medieval history.
