Title : I miracoli nella "Legenda" di Santa Margherita da Cortona [The cause for formal canonization of Margaret of Cortona was promoted in the 17th century. The evidence included a "Legend" composed by Giunta Bevegnati, a Franciscan in the 14th Century, as part of a previous attempt to have Margaret canonized. The miracles reported by Fra Giunta cluster near Cortona or involve natives of that city present elsewhere. The "Legend" shows Margaret being changed from an historical personage to a stereotypical wonder worker. Chapter 11 of the "Legenda" appears in the article appendix. The original Latin text is accompanied by variant readings. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
