The Llanthony Stories

Mediaeval Sources in Translation 59; Saint Michael’s College Mediaeval Translations. 2021. x, 174 pp. ISBN 978-0-88844-309-0 • Paper • $25.00

Compiled in the early thirteenth century, The Llanthony Stories is a fragmentary collection of exemplaria gathered by an anonymous canon at the Augustinian priory of Llanthony Secunda, Gloucester. While intended primarily for the edification of readers and those who heard the stories preached in sermons, many of the thirty-five exempla offer humorous (even ribald) glimpses of life in the Severn watershed and beyond. Filled with short tales of greedy archdeacons, licentious monks, pious laymen and prelates trying to navigate their world with decorum and piety, the work expands our knowledge of ecclesiastical politics and evangelical priorities in the Anglo-Norman church.

William of Auvergne, bishop of Paris from 1228 to 1249, was not only one of the most prolific writers in philosophy and theology of the first half of the thirteenth century but also one of the first to use the new translations of Greek and Islamic thought that poured into the Latin West in that century. In On Morals he extols the value of the nine virtues in a sophisticated narrative where each of the virtues speaks for itself, explaining its importance.
