The second of a projected set of three volumes, Volume II concludes the text; Volume III will contain the general introduction, explanatory notes, and glossary. Gilte Legende is, for the most part, a close translation (1438) of Jean de Vignay's Legende Doree (ca. 1333-40), itself a close translation of Jacobus de Voragine's immensely influential Legenda Aurea (ca. 1267). The importance of Legenda Aurea as a source book for students of late medieval literature, church history, and visual art, can hardly be overestimated.
