Item description for Elisabeth: The Live and Legend of an European Saint by Ulrich Kneise Jutte Krauss...
This volume is an invitation to meet Elisabeth, one of the most extraordinary women of the 13th century. Saint, countess, and the daughter of a king, the pictures in this book illustrate the the life of this remarkable woman and trace the path of her marriage to Ludwig IV who was called the Holy, leading to the source of her devotion to the Franciscan order. Within these pages are preserved the remains of a distant past, and a life that, strange as it may seem to modern eyes, was lived with feeling and pious devotion. The text and pictures of this book invite the reader to greater intimacy with the life of a woman who now seems legendary but once was very real.
