Description

Volume 97 of our “Subsidia hagiographica” has just been released ! It discusses a small and little-known group of lay aristocrats, military leaders, land owners, and men of letters, like Eudokimos the Righteous and Philaretos the Merciful, who together would form a new genre of Byzantine saints in the Early Middle Ages.
Prof. Sophie Métivier from the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, an acknowledged specialist of Byzantine history, examines in detail this new genre of holiness, its genesis and its roots in the aristocratic milieu of the eight-ninth centuries, as well as its links with the imperial authorities and the church hierarchy.
