Chapter Summary

The Lives of the Virgin, also called the Virgin Stories, falls through a literary genre between the hagiographic narrative and homiletic story. They are also seen in the apocryphal writings. The Lives of the Virgin are, for the most part, the compositions, sometimes rearrangements or continuations, attributed to well-known authors, and sometimes anonymous. The Lives of the Virgin are documents that cover many issues, including that of the traditions about the Dormition and Assumption of Mary. It deals with the story about the ultimate fate of Mary written generally from one of the texts of the History of the Dormition and Assumption of Mary. The Lives of the Virgin, which rather deserve the name of Lives of Mary and Jesus, impose a strong link between the Mother and the Son, otherwise expressed, between Mariology and Christology. The chapter also talks about the life of Epiphanes, Symeon the Metaphrastes and Nestorian. The original text of the chapter is in French.
