Founded in 1990, the Hagiography Society exists to promote communication among scholars studying holy people and their cults in all eras, cultures, and religious traditions. We sponsor multiple sessions at various academic conferences on both sides of the Atlantic, publish a book series, regular newsletters, and maintain a listserv and an online member directory. We also award prizes for a best article, best first book, and for graduate student travel to the International Congress [ICMS] in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Our annual business meeting occurs at ICMS each May.
