Corners are slightly lifting. Minor bump to spine corner. ; Lucas, the garrulous bishop of Tuy, included the thaumaturgy of Saint Dominicof Silos as one of the glories of Spain in his mid-thirteenth-century accountof the Peninsula's history. This study examines the rise to prominence of oneof the most important of saints' cults in Medieval Spain and its developmentthroughout the Middle Ages. It interrogates neglected texts such as the lateeleventh-century Vita Dominici Exiliensis and the late thirteenth-centuryMirculos romanados (as well as artistic representations and works writtenoutside Silos) , and places the more widely known Vida de Santo Domingo byGonzalo de Berceo (? C. 1260) in a new light by firmly fixing its presentationof the saint within the development of the cult. Dominic's veneration became centred upon his role in freeing captives, and astudy of this phenomenon provides a focus on the frontier and its settlersthrough their devotion to the saint, as well as illuminating their view oftheir Muslim adversaries. This is not the only centre of interest in the book, and a variety ofapproaches are employed to draw as round a picture as possible of thefunctioning of this saint's cult, from analysis of the manuscript traditionsof the various works discussed to a consideration of the anthropology of Silosas a pilgrimage centre. All quotations are given in both Latin or Romance withan English translation. ; The MHRA Texts & Dissertations; Vol. 56; 470 pages
