Written by a woman in an age when women rarely wrote and signed by one who calls herself Marie in an epilogue strikingly similar to that of the Fables of Marie de France, the Vie seinte Audree is a late 12th or early 13th-century Anglo Norman text. Recent scholarship has strongly suggested that The Life of Saint Audrey, published here for the first time as an English translation, may in fact be a fourth text of that earliest known female writer in French, Marie de France.
