Miracles of St. Nicholas
from the Golden Legend
All Saints’ Church, Hillesden, Buckinghamshire, England, has stunning 16th century Flemish stained glass illustrating some of the St. Nicholas miracle stories from The Golden Legend. The Golden Legend, ca. 1260, was enormously popular and was one of the first books printed when printing was invented. It had more editions than the Bible.
