Inhaltsangabe: During the Middle Ages, Mary was the most powerful of saints, and the combination of her humanity and her proximity to the divine captured the medieval imagination. Her importance is nowhere more clearly reflected than in the genre of "Miracles of the Virgin," short narrative accounts of Mary's miraculous intercessory powers. These stories tend to fit a basic narrative pattern in which Mary saves a devoted believer from spiritual or physical danger--but beneath this surface simplicity, the Miracles frequently evoke fine and revealing theological, social, and cultural distinctions. They are remarkably various in tone, ranging from the darkly serious to the comically scandalous, and Mary herself takes on a variety of characteristics, appearing as dominant and persuasive more often than she appears as gentle and maternal. This volume offers a small but representative sampling of what survives of this literature in the English language. The Middle English has been helpfully glossed and annotated, and is lightly modernized for ease of reading; one particularly challenging story is translated in facing-page format. The "In Context" sections provide relevant Biblical passages and medieval versions of the Christian prayers frequently evoked in the miracles; additional samples of Marian poetry and medieval illustrations of Marian miracles are also included.

Comments:

?The texts are well-chosen, sensitively modernized, and either translated or appropriately glossed, making the volume useful both for research and teaching. Boyarin?s strategic inclusion of Biblical passages, extra poems, prayers, and illustrations very helpfully put the miracle stories ?In Context.? A reliable resource [offering] fascinating material!? ? Laura Saetveit Miles, University of Bergen

?[A] well-chosen selection of tales along with Gospel readings, prayers, devotional poems, and manuscript illuminations to help place the telling of the Middle English tales in context. The annotations provide liturgical and scriptural references and definitions of more obscure words, but for the most part the interpretation is left to the reader. Who was this great Lady, ?Quene of Comforthe and Moder of Merci,? to whom medieval English Christians offered their service? As the tales retold here almost mischievously suggest, not even her servants seem to have known for sure.? ? Rachel Fulton Brown, University of Chicago
