The Ashgate Research Companion to Byzantine Hagiography, Volume 1 (Google eBook)
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2011 - History - 440 pages
This Companion is the work of an international team of specialists and represents the first comprehensive survey ever produced in the field of Byzantine Hagiography. It will consist of two volumes and is addressed to both a broader public and the scholarly community of Byzantinists, Medievalists, historians of religion and theorists of the narrative. The present volume covers, first, the authors and texts of the four distinctive periods during which Greek Byzantine hagiography developed, and then the hagiography produced in Oriental and Slavic languages and in geographical milieux around the periphery of the empire, from Italy to Armenia. The second volume to follow will deal with questions of genres and the social and other contexts of Byzantine hagiography.
