"The author analyses the miracle collections promoting the canonization of the popular fifteenth-century Observant Franciscan preacher, St. John of Capistran, who was a victorious Crusader at Belgrade in 1456, and died thereafter in Ilok (a city located on the periphery of western Christianity in Croatia). Based on a thorough study of the widely scattered manuscripts on Capistranean miracles (in Naples, Rome, Venice and Paris) and with the help of a microscopic philological analysis, the author has managed to reconstruct, for the first time, one of the most complex miracle collections in the history of medieval hagiography. The accounts provide an unparalleled insight into the history of everyday life and into the various hardships, illnesses, hopes, dreams and anxieties during the late medieval and early modern period."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
