Description/Abstract

This piece of nearly 25,000 words presents for the first time an edition of this important late eleventh-century text based on all manuscripts, together with a translation, where hitherto only an inaccurate version based on one late manuscript has been available in print. Accompanying this is a substantial essay in which I defend the wrongly-questioned authenticity of the account, and in which I compare it with similar accounts from England and France in order to establish its nature as a text somewhere between the genres of foundation history and monastic autobiography.
