"This, the fourth volume in this handsomely produced series by the University of Wales Press ... is a pioneering collection of interdisciplinary essays... shedding new light on familiar topics." Gwales. 'This collection goes some of the way to addressing this dearth of scholarship, and encourages new thinking on attitudes to the past and sainthood ... this is a well edited and coherent production'.
