Description

This session's three papers, ranging from Late Antiquity to the Carolingian era, explore hagiography's sources, uses of the past, and relationship with other genres. Peter B. Mottola examines the influence of Scripture on Sulpicius Severus’s depiction of Saint Martin through comparison of Saint Martin with Old Testament prophets Elijah and Elisha. John B. Wickstrom investigates the memories of the Merovingian past in Odo of Glanfeuil’s Life of Saint Maurus, produced in the mid-860s. Patrick Rory Callahan links the Lenten motifs in Notker’s Gesta Karoli Magni to the hagiographic tradition in which Notker was immersed and also connects the Lenten lessons of Notker’s work to the political and regulatory use made by the Carolingians of Lent.
