Nicholas Roscarrock& & of the Saints& Cornwall and Devon (Devon and Cornwall Record Society. Orme gives a minimum of political and social context in which to situate his overview. His remarks are largely directed at the fabric of the church and its institutions, focusing on & than & which in a book of 166 pages is probably an essential discipline. There is more that could and should be said. Medieval Cornwall is a fascinating and important world which we should strive to understand and celebrate.

Cornwall is unique among English counties, though similar to other Celtic lands, in its religious history. Its churches, chapels, and place-names commemorated not only the major saints of Christendom, but also many minor 'Celtic' ones, unique to single churches. The main part of the book provides a history of every known religious cult in Cornwall from the sixth century AD to the Reformation, with relevant information about its later history down to the present day. Every known site is identified (church, chapel, altar, image, holy well, or other outdoor feature), and every written source is discussed (saint's Life, liturgical commemoration, and calendar festival).

Nicholas Roscarrock's Lives of the Saints (1992).

Nicholas Roscarrock (c.1548-1634) was a Cornish Catholic who suffered torture and imprisonment in the Tower of London, and afterwards wrote a great dictionary of British and Irish saints, which has never been published. Using medieval Latin saints' Lives together with precious folklore not recorded elsewhere, he wrote concise accounts of Petroc and Piran, Neot and Samson, Sidwell and Urith, and many lesser-known figures, often with picturesque details. Here are many familiar and some unique stories: St Columb's well whose water would not boil; St Endelient, King Arthur and the cow; and St Menfre who threw her comb at the Devil.This edition provides, for the first time, a printed text of all Roscarrock's articles - about 100 - which relate to the saints of Cornwall and Devon. An introduction tells the story of Roscarrock's life, describes his book, and provides a basic historical account of the 'Cornish saints'. Detailed notes explain what is known today about the saints individually, and an appendix lists all those who are included in the dictionary.
