I’ve just uploaded a file containing the Latin text, with a translation, of 47 of the miracle stories of St Nicholas which are found in medieval manuscripts. These are BHL 6130-6147 inclusive. A couple of the texts I have transcribed from manuscripts online. Most are from the Bollandist catalogues of the Brussels and Paris libraries, or from early editions. The translations are basically from Google Translate, but I have at least read over them and fixed some obvious errors. As usual I put this file and its contents in the public domain – do whatever you like with it, personal, educational or commercial. Just don’t put your own copyright notice on my work, thank you.
Here are the files:
I’ve also uploaded them to Archive.org here.
I made this file while working on the Life of St Nicholas by John the Deacon. In the manuscripts this gets tangled up with all these texts, and it gets fairly confusing. With this file, all I have to do is a Ctrl-F Find, and I can at once see just what the page of text in the manuscript image in front of me belongs to.
There are still more miracle stories to do, but I ran out of puff at this point. Maybe one day I will return to it and add more! Or maybe not.
