Workshop: “Hagiography and Mythic Sainthood: The Saint and Mythic Identity”

Humanities and Social Sciences building, Rm. 319

English Department

This workshop explores the intersection between myth and religion and focuses specifically on the notion of sainthood.

It seeks to answer these and other questions: What makes a saint? How does hagiography affect the historical image of a real saint? What modern or popular examples of hagiography circulate today? What elements of the mythic appear in religious scholarship and discourse today? Are there popular saints? How is the way we represent figures in the past relevant for our current understanding of these figures?

Panelists: Lindsey Moser (Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice) and Michael Williamson (Department of English)

This workshop is free and open to the community.
