About the Authors
  • Karl Pearson (1857–1936) was a polymath thinker well known for founding the discipline of mathematical statistics, as well as for being a controversial proponent of eugenics. First published in 1887, and presented here in its original German form, this volume relates to the legends surrounding Saint Veronica, the pious Jerusalem woman who reputedly offered her veil to Jesus as he walked to Golgotha, and then found an image of his face impressed upon the veil after he had wiped his brow with it. The text is well presented, with numerous illustrative examples, and will be of value to anyone with an interest in the story of Veronica and Christian symbolism in general.
