The Wandering Jew, the story of the Jewish shoemaker who is doomed to wander the Earth until the Second Coming . William Tell, the Swiss hero who shot an apple off his son's head . Saint George, a Christian who suffered seven torturous deaths only to be revived each time, healthy and unhurt . The Fortunate Isles, also known as Atlantis; this myth posits the existence of a magical land in the west where paradise awaits. English hagiographer and scholar SABINE BARING-GOULD (1834-1924) published a book of English folk songs entitled Songs of the West in 1889 and wrote many hymns, including "Onward, Christian Soldiers."The Reverend Sabine Baring-Gould of Lew Trenchard in Devon, England, was an Anglican priest, hagiographer, antiquarian, novelist, folk song collector and eclectic scholar. His bibliography consists of more than 1240 publications, though this list continues to grow.
