Medieval Saints: sources

Medieval Saints
Saints' lives are a major resource for anyone concerned with the history of ancient times. As one might expect, a great deal can be learned about the religious life of the periods.
Such lives are also our best sources for basic social and cultural history, they provide information on daily life, food and drink, organization of society and the impact of commerce, relations and specific dates for military and political history.
