Description

A collection of ten articles published between 1989 and 1998 and two hitherto unpublished articles (one of which is of almost one hundred pages on the Passion and Translation composed in the 9th century at Saint- Germain-des-Prés), this work is the best synthesis of today’s knowledge of one of the most popular martyrs of the Middle Ages.  With a rare mastery of his subject the author outlines the most credible historical facts relating to Vincent, retraces the progression of his cult in Spain, Gaul and Italy and studies all the hagiographical sources prior to 1000 A.D.  The editions and commentaries of BHL 8628-8631, 8632, 8634-8636, 8638, 8639 and 8644-8645 are all brought together in this book as well as a detailed analysis of the manuscript tradition in each case.
