Overview

Written by Adam of Eynsham, Hugh's chaplain and inseparable companion in the last years of the saint's life, this biography chronicles the life of Hugh of Lincoln, who combined ardent religious belief and practice with an active life of administration, legal skill, patronage of scholars, and the building of his cathedral.
