In medieval collections of miracula many stories are about sick persons who are healed by a particular saint after fruitless pilgrimages to other saints’ tombs. Similar miracles are included in Vita Ansuini BHL 555, Miracula Audoeni BHL 760 and Vita Geraldi BHL 3417. The exceptional feature here lies in the fact that Ansuinus, Audoenus and Adalardus of Corbie perform the miracle after a sort of failure of the archangel Michael. Some points in the Vita Ansuini, concerning the Saint honoured by angels, suggest a theological background based on New Testament passages; but most interestingly these Vitae are a sign of the changing devotion and of the acknowledged pre-eminence of saints over angels.
