Overview

Short story based on the life/legend of St. Ursula. The story begins: "There was once a just and most Christian King of Britain, called Maurus.

But they could not make known the thing to him, for only God in Heaven knew how the rough robe signified that she should follow holiness and purity all her days, and the wisdom of St. John the Baptist. And because of the mantle, they called her Ursula, 'Little Bear.'"
