The Golden Legend, an extensive collection of saints’ biographies, became one of the
best-selling books of the late medieval period. By the 15th century, editions of Voragine’s
Golden Legend were available in every major European language. This seven-volume
edition, published in 1900, is F. S. Ellis’ modern update of a 1483 Middle English
translation. The third volume contains brief biographies of St. Valentine, St. Patrick, and
St. Ambrose among more than fifty others.
