This represents the first study devoted to the life and after-life of St John of Beverley. The hagiographic works on John extend over nearly six hundred years from the 8th to the 15th centuries. Wilson uses these sources as a unique opportunity to examine the ways in which an Anglo-Saxon saint was promoted over a long period of time and was continually re-created in the image which the hagiographers or community required, depending on their current needs and perceptions. The volume also includes the first English translations of the Life and the miracle stories.
