9780754650331: The Ashgate Research Companion to Byzantine Hagiography: Volume I: Periods and Places

For an entire millennium, Byzantine hagiography, inspired by the veneration of many saints, exhibited literary dynamism and a capacity to vary its basic forms. The subgenres into which it branched out after its remarkable start in the fourth century underwent alternating phases of development and decline that were intertwined with changes in the political, social and literary spheres. The selection of saintly heroes, an interest in depicting social landscapes, and the modulation of linguistic and stylistic registers captured the voice of homo byzantinus down to the end of the empire in the fifteenth century. The seventeen chapters in this companion form the sequel to those in volume I which dealt with the periods and regions of Byzantine hagiography, and complete the first comprehensive survey ever produced in this field. The book is the work of an international group of experts in the field and is addressed to both a broader public and the scholarly community of Byzantinists, medievalists, historians of religion and theorists of narrative. It highlights the literary dimension and the research potential of a representative number of texts, not only those appreciated by the Byzantines themselves but those which modern readers rank high due to their literary quality or historical relevance.

About the Author:

Stephanos Efthymiadis is Professor at the Open University of Cyprus.

Review:

'... highly informative ... the book brings together a team of recognized experts to explore key issues in their field with the aim of producing a comprehensive reference guide to the material under consideration. ... readers will consult this book for its comprehensive and authoritative review of basic textual and bibliographical information, while others will consult it for its analysis and insights.' Speculum 'This volume covers an exceptionally wide linguistic, geographical, chronological, authorial, and topical range of dense and complex material on innumerable holy men and women... the book is a very useful contribution for research on Byzantine hagiography.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review 'Many congratulations are owed to the editor ... as he succeeded in presenting a serious study to modern scholarship, an important study not only to Byzantinists, but also to scholars, interested in theology, literature, and social history of Byzantium. Given the major names of the contributors and the well-written content, there is no doubt that this companion will be the primer for years to come. Every university library should have a copy. I await with great interest the second volume, which will be dedicated to aspects of hagiography as a literary genre.' Hortulus
