Collection of miracle stories and lives of the saints told in the style of contemporary novels, with the intention of making the average reader realize the punishment for sinful actions and the reward for virtuous life. Includes paraphrases of miraculous stories and legends of the Virgin and of the saints. Many of the latter category are based on early Christian literature, such as the Lives of the Fathers, which in many cases are cited as the source. The individual stories appear to be unpublished, except for the story of the childless queen. Appears to be incomplete, with one or more folios missing at the end.
