The Life of Saint Katherine
In telling the story of the life of the virgin martyr Katherine, Capgrave uses many of the tropes that mark the enormously popular genre of hagiography as it was written throughout the Middle Ages. Incl. digressions on just and unjust rule; on child care; on medieval English feasts, jousts and pageants; and on the role(s) of women.
