Teaching the Saints

The Hagiography Society is collecting materials that will support our members in their varied teaching commitments related to the study of holy people and their worlds. We are seeking the following teaching-related materials related to hagiography, broadly conceived:
syllabi, single lesson plans, bibliographies, podcasts, and videos. If you have items to share, please complete this form which will also allow you to upload files.  Click here to complete the Google form.  We are excited to build this resource, which will be made available to members here on the Hagiography Society website. Thank you in advance for your contribution! If you have suggestions or questions, please submit them to Lydia Walker (lmwalker@barton.edu).

Resources For Research And Teaching On Medieval Saints

Thomas Head’s Essays on Hagiography from the ORB Website: The late Thomas Head’s introductory essays and bibliographies on hagiographical topics, which were published on ORB.net, are beloved by many scholars and teachers.  With the ORB website now defunct, the Hagiography Society embarked on a process to make these essays once again available to the general public in a manner allowed by the copyright permissions after consulting with the estate of Tom Head and the former host institution of ORB.  The essays appear below as PDF files.  Please note that highlighted text in the files indicating links will not work, but the essays and bibliographies themselves are otherwise preserved as they had been published.
