About this book

Margaret, saint and 11th-century Queen of the Scots, remains an often-cited yet little-understood historical figure. Keene's analysis of sources in terms of both time and place – including her Life of Saint Margaret , translated for the first time – allows for an informed understanding of the forces that shaped this captivating woman.

Reviews

“Saint Margaret, Queen of Scots: A Life in Perspective will prove to be an exceptionally valuable resource for those working both on St. Margaret and on early medieval queeuship and female sainthood more generally. Keene's work will also surely pave the way for even more much-needed scholarship on ‘the other queen of Scots’ … .” (Emily Wingfield, Archiv für das Studium der neueren Sprachen und Literaturen, Vol. 167 (252), 2015)


"This study on the life and cult of Margaret of Scotland offers a combination of biographic and hagiographic approach. It is founded in ample international scholarship on the different political and religious contexts where she lived and where her memory got fashioned. A colorful inquiry on a fascinating person and an impressive saintly queen mother." - Gábor Klaniczay, Professor of Medieval Studies, Central European University, Budapest
