Excerpt from A Garner of Saints: Being a Collection of the Legends and Emblems Usually Represented in Art
When the story they represent is made known. Of the legends themselves, they belong to many periods, but taken as a whole they may be said to represent the ideas and aspirations of mediaeval Christianity. When the vast majority of men could neither read nor write, the churches they frequented contained in their storied walls and windows the body of their religious teaching in perhaps its most vivid form. This is an oft-treated subject and one into which it is unnecessary to enter here. If this volume serves to create new interest in the minds of those devoted to art, it will have fully answered its purpose.
