Dedicated to the miraculous side of the Germania Latina nexus, the essays in this collection treat cultural appropriation in saints' lives and other religious texts derived from Latin traditions and transmitted through medieval Germanic vernaculars. Miracle stories were appealing narratives which travelled well but were usually adapted for their new audiences to reflect localised interests. Approaching this recontextualisation from historical, theological and literary points of view, the contributions pay particular attention to the way the miraculous is retained and refashioned in Latin texts and vernacular redactions from Anglo-Saxon England, Iceland and the Continent.
