Curious Myths of the Middle Ages: The Sangreal, Pope Joan, The Wandering Jew, and Others by Sabine Baring-Gould

One of the most brilliant, eclectic thinkers in Victorian England, the Reverend Sabine Baring-Gould (1834-1924) was intrigued by the grotesque and often savage history of the Middle Ages. The noted author and folklorist's fascination with the period resulted in this absorbing compilation of vintage tales surrounding such figures as William Tell and the Man in the Moon.
Twenty-four legendary figures—among others, Saint Patrick, the Pied Piper, knights of the Holy Grail, and St. George—are rejuvenated in this collection for a new audience. In addition to outlines of the myths, the author provides an objective analysis of their origins, relevance, and the extent of their basis in fact. Fascinating sources include Christian adaptations of prehistoric legends, misinterpretations of actual events, and outright fabrications. Accompanying illustrations provide a visual appreciation for these timeless classics. A marvelous introduction to age-old stories, this oft-cited work will be of value and interest to students, scholars, and other readers.
