Description

Saints’ Lives are written for many reasons. This panel consists of four speakers whose research explores how polemic, devotion, economics, canonization, the arrival of relics, or the experience of miracle may have led to the composition of saints’ "Lives" and substantially shaped the content of those narratives. We look for papers attentive to "Lives" whose compositional contexts have been misunderstood or insufficiently appreciated, and for clarificats that affect our understanding of immediate context, cult history, and hagiographical studies.
