The history of the Franks by Gregory( Book )
17 editions published between 1927 and 1969 in English and held by 483 libraries worldwide
Glory of the martyrs by Gregory( Book )
17 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in English and Latin and held by 423 libraries worldwide
Contains a series of anecdotes about the lives and cults of Christians who suffered and usually died for their beliefs. These anecdotes provide important historical evidence, first, for the ways bishops and their congregations manipulated traditions about the development of the early Church, and second, for the contemporary functions and meanings of the cults of saints during the sixth century. The spontaneity and literary modesty of many of the anecdotes make them especially valuable for modern historians intent upon understanding the early Frankish Church. In addition to the translation, this volume includes an introduction and commentary. The introduction summarizes essential information about the chronology, composition and purposes of the "Glory of the Martyrs", and also discusses other relevant topics, such as the role of these anecdotes in the celebration of the liturgy and the contrast between 'rusticity' and correct behaviours and belief. The commentary provides only basic identifications, dates, background and references to other secondary scholarly literature

Lives and miracles by Gregory( Book )
6 editions published in 2015 in English and Latin and held by 184 libraries worldwide
Gregory of Tours served as bishop of Tours, then a city in the Frankish kingdom, from 563-594. Acclaimed by the French as "the father of our history" on account of his 'History of the Franks', he also wrote stories about holy men and women and about wondrous events he experienced, witnessed, or knew as miracles. In our times many people deny the existence of miracles, while others use the term so loosely that it becomes almost meaningless. Must a true miracle transcend "natural laws"? Gregory's lively stories relate what he regarded as the visible results of holy power, direct or mediated, and its role in the lives of his contemporaries. His conversational narratives, which are largely without self-conscious stylistic effects, present unique, often moving, glimpses into his world. For Gregory, the frontiers between interior and exterior, God and matter, word or gesture and its referent, remained fluid. 'Lives and Miracles' includes the texts of 'The Life of the Fathers', 'The Miracles of the Martyr Julian', and 'The Miracles of Bishop Martin'. (Book jacket)

Dans ce recueil de vingt biographies, figurent vingt-trois " Pères "--Évêques, abbés, moines ainsi qu'une moniale - choisis par Grégoire de Tours pour avoir, par leur ascèse et leur charité, mené en Gaule, entre le ive et le vie siècle, une même " vie " consacrée à Dieu. Chacune de ces biographies nous introduit dans une cité du territoire gaulois qui, demeurée dans l'Antiquité Tardive le cadre familial et social de l'existence quotidienne des habitants, s'identifie désormais à la communauté ecclésiale locale, sous la protection d'un ou de plusieurs patrons célestes. Avec ces épisodes, l'auteur révèle son talent de conteur habile à tenir en haleine ses lecteurs par tous les ressorts de la narration. En s'efforçant de retenir ainsi leur attention, l'évêque de Tours souhaite oeuvrer au salut des fidèles auxquels s'adresse son message : les Pères sont des modèles qu'ils doivent s'efforcer d'imiter, mais aussi de puissants intercesseurs auprès de Dieu qui, par leur entremise, opère des miracles salvateurs
