THIS book constitutes an attempt to reintroduce to English readers a cycle of old tales in which their ancestors took great delight—a by-way of mediaeval literature which, from one cause or another, is now practically unknown except to professed students of folklore and hagiography. This cycle, the Miracles of Our Lady, or, to give it its terse and technical name, the Mary-legends, is formed by a large group of religio-romantic stories, linked together by no closer tie than the fact that the virgin Mary supplies the supernatural element in each. Varying between the extremes of mysticism and melodrama, and belonging to many periods and places, from England to Egypt, from the fourth century to the fifteenth, they have yet contrived to assemble themselves together, and even to acquire a certain family likeness.
