Description
Summary:Written by Adam of Eynsham, Hugh's chaplain and inseparable companion in the last years of the saint's life, this biography chronicles the life of Hugh of Lincoln, who combined ardent religion belief and practice with an active life of administration, legal skill, patronage of scholars, and the building of his cathedral. Originally published in 1961, now with a new preface by the editors, this is one of the fullest and most authentic accounts of the life of a saint to have come from medieval England.
