Show Summary Details


Conrad of Marburg addressed this brief summary of Elizabeth’s life to Gregory IX in an effort to provide some context for the list of sixty miracles that it accompanied. It was written sometime between August 11, 1232, when Conrad conducted the interviews, and October 13, 1232, the date of Gregory IX’s response to Conrad’s report. It elucidates the circumstances that led Conrad to gather evidence regarding Elizabeth’s miracle as well as the nature of Elizabeth’s holy life as Conrad had experienced it.
