The problem of hagiography -- Kildare and the Kingdom of God: Cogitosus’s Life of Brigit -- The saint and the serpent: Vita Samsonis I -- Cuthbert the Bridge-builder: The Anonymous Vita Cuthberti -- The promise of hermeneutics.

This book sets three saints' lives in their specifically Christian and biblical context, recognizing that much of the anecdotal material in the narratives is modelled on biblical precedents, and that their authors and first audiences were Christian monastics in regions that were in the process of becoming Christianized.
