Summary "The signs, wonders, and miracles by which God was believed to communicate with his people on earth provide the focus for this wide-ranging volume. Beginning with a reconsideration of Constantine's vision in 312 and ending with a discussion of the place of miracles in the making of twentieth-century Spanish identity, these essays explore the manifestations of divine power in the conversion of the ancient world to Christianity, in medieval saints' lives and Byzantine hagiography, in the Crusades, and in the early modern and modern periods."--BOOK JACKET.
