Gilte Legende is mostly a close translation "drawen out of Frensshe into Englisshe" in 1438, of Jean de Vignay's Lgende Dore of about 1333-40, itself a close translation of Jacobus de Voragine's Legenda Aurea, completed about 1267. The twenty-six lives here include Thomas Becket, Edmund of Abingdon, Frideswide, Edward the Confessor, Erkenwald, Augustine of Canterbury, Brendan, and Winifred. Also edited are an incomplete tract on "What the church betokenith," explaining some of the symbolism of the church and its services; and another detailing what indulgences were available to pilgrims in each of the churches in Rome.
