Two Mediaeval Lives of Saint Winefride

With an Essay on Winefride's Well-Cult
  • By Catherine Hamaker
  • By Hugh Feiss
  • By Ronald Pepin
St. Winefride, beheaded by a lustful suitor, was brought back to life by the power of prayer. On the site where her blood was spilled, a spring of healing water erupted and became the focus of a miracle-working cult which gained influence throughout the Middle Ages and the early modern period. Two Mediaeval Lives of Saint Winefride brings together two twelfth-century accounts of her life, miracles and relics, with a study of British well-cults and her significance in mediaeval and early modern Britain. Fr. Hugh Feiss is a Benedictine monk, scholar and gifted Latin translator. His latest book, Essential Monastic Wisdom, was chosen as one of the top ten Catholic books by the organization, Church 2000. He is a member of the Monastery of the Ascension, Jerome, Idaho.
