Anglo-Saxon Royal Saints and the Trope of the Treacherous Woman: The Martyrdoms of Ss. Kenelm and Æthelberht

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

The unique character of the treacherous woman in Anglo-Norman hagiography is an evident product of the social and religious milieu in which the hagiographical narrative was constructed. The Passio S. Æthelberhti and Vita et miracula S. Kenelmi record the martyrdoms of Anglo-Saxon royal saints at the hands of shallowly drawn, yet powerful, female antagonists
