Sacred Biography Across Confessions and Continents: on the Limits of Hagiography as a Category of Analysis
Sponsored by the Hagiography Society
Although the genre of “hagiography” initially emerged to characterize writing for the purpose of promulgating the Christian cult of saints, it has since been applied across confessions to describe varied forms of sacred biography and spiritual life writing. This panel seeks to destabilize the genre of hagiography by examining subjects and situations that elude it. We invite papers that consider surprising uses of hagiographic writing or that focus on figures and narratives that challenge universal constructions of hagiography.
