The Medieval Vitae of St. Mary of Egypt // A Synopsis & Repository of Versions and Translations
This whole project is very much work in progress. For the foreseeable future, the synopsis will remain restricted to one section of the legend's plot: The feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross comes; Mary of Egypt joins others to go to the church, tries to enter, but some divine force holds her back; she sees the icon of the Mother of God above where she is standing.
