Another of the medieval “saints’ lives” of St Nicholas of Myra, the basis for our Santa Claus, is now accessible in English. This is the so-called Vita Compilata, or “Compiled life”, put together from earlier hagiographical sources.
A kind gentleman writing as Fr. Alban Justinus has translated it for us, from the Greek edition of G. Anrich. Many thanks!
Here it is:
