Who saved Danyel in the horrible cave
Ther every wight save he, maister and knave,
Was with the leon frete er he asterte?
No wight but God that he bar in his herte.
– Geoffrey Chaucer
The Canterbury Tales, The Man of Law’s Tale. The Man of Law interrupts his storytelling to explain why Constance survived the massacre at the wedding feast. Just like when Daniel was the only one in the cave who escaped being devoured by the lion, the devoutly Christian Constance was saved by having God in her heart.
