David Miller has kindly made us a translation of another of the legends of St Nicholas, a.k.a. Santa Claus. This one is the Praxis de stratelatis, which recounts how Nicholas dealt with three generals and also how the governor tried to execute three innocent men. The narrative displays considerable knowledge of events of people of the reign of Constantine, so must be late antique.
Here’s the translation:
