GUEST,SteveG Origins: Jesus Met Woman at the Well/Maid & Palmer (53* d) RE: Origins: Jesus Met Woman at the Well/Maid & Palmer 20 Sep 11


An interesting possibility. Everyone has assumed because of the palmer's supernatural powers he is either God or Jesus in disguise, but the beliefs of the period might well have endowed supernatural powers of second sight and issuing penances to a palmer.

However if Child was right the ballad is a translation of a continental ballad and therefore we should look to the continental versions to tell us who he was.
