The Life of St. Severinus is a time-honored work that, by looking at the life of St. Severinus, opens a window into the early medieval period. Witten by his disciple, Eugippius, this account of St. Severinus’ life follows the saint along the Danube and through Bavaria as he preached, prophesied, and performed miracles, winning many to Christianity. This fascinating tale includes accounts of the redemption of captives, defeat of enemy armies, healing of the sick, rescue from famine, and more. It also illuminates the mode of St. Severinus’ life, his character, humility, and asceticism, and his prediction of his own death and the miracles ascribed to him in his eventual resting place in Naples, Italy.
This book is an excellent choice for anyone interested in early medieval history and the lives of the saints. Appendixes include a Latin hymn in praise of St. Severinus, a list of other editions and translations of his biography, and a chronological table to provide context with other world events.
