Comparative Hagiology: Prospects for Future Research

The workshop seeks to establish the future research agenda for the collaborative, interdisciplinary and cross-cultural study of sanctity and hagiographic processes. It will do so by building on the outcomes of the 2017 and 2018 AAR Hagiology Workshops, and the scholarly collaborations that developed from them: in particular, a forthcoming special issue of Religions on theory and method in comparative hagiology, and two cross-cultural comparative edited volumes in development (on “hagiography and patronage,” and on “hagiography and monastic identity”). Attendees of the 2019 workshop will join in crafting a mission statement and research goals that will serve as foundational documents for establishing an AAR seminar on Comparative Hagiology.

Individuals wishing to participate must register via the AAR Conference registration portal:
